A Mississippi County man has been arrested and charged with sexual misconduct after allegedly exposing himself to multiple people, including a minor.

According to Mississippi County Sheriff Keith Moore, the investigation began Wednesday evening when Deputy Marc Tragesser received an indecent exposure complaint from a resident in the Eagles Landing subdivision.

Deputy Tragesser interviewed several witnesses and gathered electronic evidence leading officers to believe Maurice Woodrow Debaun, 80, of East Prairie, had intentionally exposed himself to several neighbors, including a five year old girl.

At that time, Debaun was arrested and taken to the Mississippi County Detention Center.

Debaun is charged with sexual misconduct involving a child less than fifteen years of age.

He also faces two counts of sexual misconduct.

Debaun is kept in the Mississippi County Detention Center with bond set at $15,000, cash only.
