Registered Sex Offender Charged for Public Masturbation in Winlock

By The Chronicle

A sex offender registered to live in Winlock was charged Monday with indecent exposure after he allegedly masturbated in view of a family.

Troy S. McClure, 52, made his first appearance on the charge Monday in Lewis County Superior Court.

He is being held in the Lewis County Jail on $25,000 bail.

According to court documents, a deputy from the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of indecent exposure in Winlock.

A man reported McClure was sitting on the riverbank near his house masturbating in full view of his family. The man, two adult women and a child saw the act, according to court documents.

“It did not seem to them that McClure tried in any way to cover himself when the witnesses saw him,” according to court documents.

McClure is a Level 2 sex offender registered to live in the 1500 block of Ferrier Road in Winlock, according to the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office.

He is required to register as a sex offender due to a 2007 conviction for third-degree assault of a child with sexual motivation, according to court documents.
