Chico, Calif.—According to the Butte County District Attorney a well-known Chico homeless man was sentenced Tuesday in Butte County Superior Court to sex offender probation and 300 days in Butte County Jail for misdemeanor convictions of indecent exposures and multiple failures to appear in court.

Jason Edward Lisle, age 45 is also a registered sex offender.

He has been ordered to stay 500 yards away from the downtown Chico business where he committed his act of indecent exposure.

Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey said that the stay away order banishes Lisle from the downtown area.

According to Ramsey the indecent exposure conviction stemmed from an incident on June 6th 2017 when Lisle approached a woman outside a business where she was employed on the 300 block of Broadway Street.

Lisle asked the woman if she had any money for the homeless.

When the woman declined, Lisle pulled down his pants and exposed himself.

Lisle then proceeded to shake his genitals at the victim for what the victim described as quite a while.

Eventually Lisle turned and began urinating next to the victim.

Ramsey said that his office filed the indecent exposure charge against Lisle along with a request for the court to issue an arrest warrant.

Lisle was arrested by Chico Police who released him on a citation to appear in court, which Lisle failed to do.

Ramsey said that this lead to a series of arrests and releases on citations on which Lisle failed to appear.

Ramsey said that misdemeanor arrests usually result in citation releases because the Butte County Jail is crowded.

Lisle has been a registered sex offender since 2001 after he pled guilty to felony sexual battery and was sentenced to four years in state prison.

After his failure to appear in February a local judge issued a no cite or release misdemeanor warrant for Lisle.

He was arrested and held at the Butte County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bail.

Lisle was held until his sentencing day.

Judge Jesus Rodriquez sentenced Lisle to three years of formal probation, ordered him to serve 300 days in Butte County Jail, and ordered him to complete sex offender specific therapy.

Judge Rodriquez also ordered Lisle to stay 500 yards away from the victim and the downtown area where she worked.
