CINCINNATI - A man once accused of flashing women jogging in Hyde Park is a free man. Charges against Darnell Dukes were dismissed today, after a judge said he had been held in jail too long without being brought to trial.
Darnell Dukes surrended to police in early January. Cincinnati Police said he confessed, admitting he flashed women for the "shock value."
Dukes was facing six counts of public indecency and was expected to begin trial Monday. But the case was continued and the judge said Dukes had already spent more time in jail than he would have, had he been convicted on all the charges facing him.
The investigation into other flashing incidents is ongoing. Police have reports of another incident in the Oakley area just a week after Dukes was arrested.
