NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Newport News police officer Christopher Roush was indicted by a grand jury Friday on a new felony charge of indecent liberties with a child under the age of 15 and other misdemeanors.
Roush, 41, also faces five counts of misdemeanor obscene sexual display and seven counts of misdemeanor indecent exposure.
Roush was arrested Saturday and released on bond. He remains on administrative leave without pay.
These charges stem from an incident on April 7, when police responded to the 700 block of Harpersville Road to report a man exposing himself. A witness observed Roush nude on his porch and the responding officer saw a naked man shut the front door on the same porch.
Roush was originally charged with two counts of indecent exposure and one count of obscene sexual display, but those charges were considered nolle prosequi at a May 10 court date.
Roush is a Master Police Officer with the Newport News Police Department. He has been with the Department for nine years and is assigned to the South Precinct.
In addition to the criminal charges, an administrative investigation will be conducted by the police department's professional standards office.
