Newport News officer found guilty in indecent exposure case

A Newport News police officer, accused of exposing himself to people in his neighborhood last April, was found guilty on Thursday of 12 misdemeanors.

The 12 misdemeanors include five counts of obscene sexual display and seven counts of indecent exposure.

According to police, witnesses saw him standing on his front porch nude and touching himself.

Roush was arrested but at the time only faced a few charges.

New evidence presented to the Newport News Grand Jury last May changed that, resulting in his arrest again for new charges.

A few years ago Roush, who then went by the name Christopher Miner, was on trial in two separate cases in which two women he dated said he tied them up and sexually assaulted them.

He was found not guilty in both cases and got his job back in 2010.

    I agree on your reporting of the police and their exploits. Why wasn’t there any local coverage on my appearance on Dr. Phil.
