MARYVILLE, Mo. — A Maryville man who exposed himself to two women in public this summer will serve jail time, probation and perform community service, the Nodaway County prosecutor announced last week.

Bryce Laroy Enyard, 27, pleaded guilty on Oct. 17, online court records indicate, to two misdemeanor counts of sexual misconduct. Nodaway County Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice said in a press release that Enyard will serve nine days in jail, work 20 hours of community service each month for three months, continue treatment with a provider, submit apology letters to the victims and serve two years of probation.

According to online court records, the misdemeanor probation will be overseen by Private Probation Services, a for-profit company based in St. Joseph that carries out some misdemeanor probation sentences in northwest Missouri.

In August, Enyard was arrested after community members identified him from surveillance camera footage taken of a man who exposed himself in public to two women.

Rice, who asked the court for 120 days of jail time for Enyard, said that the judge’s ruling cited the defendant’s cooperation with law enforcement, guilty plea and the steps Enyard took to get treatment before sentencing as factors in the sentencing decision.

“While I disagree with the court’s decision regarding the amount of jail time, I, too, appreciate the fact the defendant did not subject the victims through a trial,” Rice said in a statement. “I hope this never happens again.”

Because of the guilty plea, Enyard will have to register as a Tier 1 sex offender, the lowest of the three-tier system in Missouri. Tier 1 offenders may petition to be removed from the registry after 10 years.
