A Doylestown man has been sentenced to probation for exposing himself to a woman holding a baby at a Hatfield laundromat in March 2023.

Paul Williams, 30, was recently sentenced to four years’ probation after pleading guilty to one misdemeanor count of indecent exposure as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors. In exchange for his plea, additional charges of institutional vandalism, harassment, open lewdness, and disorderly conduct were dropped, according to court records.

Sentencing notes indicate that Williams will be placed on sex offender supervision and must undergo both psychosexual and sex offender evaluations and comply with all recommendations. He is also prohibited from going near the laundromat, court records show.

Williams allegedly entered Karina’s Laundromat around 3:20 p.m. on March 16, 2023 and began screaming. A female employee who was working in an office while caring for her infant son encountered Williams and observed a bulge in Williams’ pants, police said.

Believing he had to go to the bathroom, the woman attempted to show Williams where the bathroom was, but Williams instead pulled down his pants and began masturbating while staring at the woman and her son, police said.

The woman retreated to the office and called her supervisor, police said. Williams continued to masturbate while walking away, screaming that he “owned the place,” according to police, citing information provided by a second witness.

Police said they arrived to find Williams standing in the doorway of a closet, still with his hands in his pants. He was subsequently taken into custody, however he later resisted arrest while being placed into a police vehicle, damaging a rear door frame, interior molding on the rear door, and ripping an interior camera out of place, according to charging documents.
