Trial Date Set for "Moundsville Flasher"

Posted: Updated:

A trial date has been set for the man once dubbed the "Moundsville Flasher."

Brody Ostrander will face charges of indecent exposure and solicitation of prostitution in July in Marshall County. Ostrander has been behind bars since April 11 for an incident that allegedly happened in late March. He appeared in Magistrate Court Monday afternoon.

In October of 2011, Ostrander pleaded guilty to one count of indecent exposure. He got his infamous nickname after a series of events spanning the course of nearly two years. The first reports appeared in December 2009, as nearly five incidents were reported.

In January 2010, another victim came forward with information on the case, saying she saw the "flasher" one year earlier. By March 2010, ten incidents of a flasher in Marshall and Wetzel Counties had already been reported. In April of that year, there was a break in the case, when a woman got a partial plate of the man believed to be the flasher.

Days later, on April 22, 2010, Ostrander turned himself in to the Marshall County Sheriff's Department. Over a year later, on August 3, 2011, Ostrander was charged with two counts of public indecency in Marshall County.

On September 26, 2010, Ostrander appeared in court to plead guilty to two of three counts of indecent exposure in neighboring Tyler County. The third charge against Ostrander was dismissed because the victim could not identify Ostrander in a photo array.
