NYACK - Rockland County Assemblyman Ken Zebrowski is calling for a tougher state law that punishes anyone who exposes themselves in front of children.

He introduced a bill in Albany that would create stiffer penalties for public lewdness, a crime which is currently a misdemeanor.

The bill would charge anyone with an automatic felony if they exposed themselves in front of a child. Those charged multiple times would be registered as sex offenders.

The bill follows the arrest of David Chardon, 22, who allegedly exposed himself in front of little girls on three separate occasions at the Palisades Mall late last year.
