— A Milton man was charged Thursday with causing a child to view sexual activity and exposing his genitals to a child.

Richard P. Elliott, 36, of 44 Hilltop Drive, Milton, was taken into custody Wednesday by Milton Police.


A 16-year-old Milton High School student told police that on many occasions between Feb. 2 and Feb. 11 she saw Elliott naked and sometimes masturbating in front of a picture window that faced the street as she walked to and from school, according to the criminal complaint.


Police put Elliott under surveillance Wednesday, and officers saw him naked and standing in front of his home's picture window while children walked past, according to the criminal complaint.


Elliott was released on a signature bond after his initial court appearance Thursday with orders to have no contact with the 16-year-old girl or any minors except his own son.


If convicted, Elliott could be sentenced to more than six years in prison.
