Man Charged With Exposing Himself Via Webcam

A Central Florida man was arrested Thursday on charges he exposed himself using a Webcam to an undercover Collier County Sheriff’s Office detective he believed was a 13-year-old girl.

Deputies with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office arrested Edward Radford, 40, after executing a search warrant at his residence in Ocala. Radford was arrested on a Collier County warrant charging him with lewd and lascivious exhibition via Webcam.

Radford is charged with transmitting Webcam videos of himself with his genitals exposed to a person he believed to be a 13-year-old girl in February. In fact, the person was an undercover CCSO detective.

Radford was on a Webcam and chatting online when Marion deputies executed the search warrant. Radford was using the same screen name that he used while chatting with the undercover CCSO deputy online in February.
