VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — A judge convicted and sentenced a registered sex offender to serve a year for indecent exposure, a class 1 misdemeanor.

Walter Maiden is also banned from the Hilltop Shopping Center after police arrested him in September for masturbating in a parking lot.

Maiden is a registered sex offender in Louisiana. The State Sex Offender registry said a judge convicted him on child porn charges in 2012.

Chesapeake police arrested Maiden in August off of Greenbrier Parkway. He was charged with indecent exposure and performing a sex act on himself.

The Virginia Beach Commonwealth's Attorney's Office said Maiden has noted his appeal.
