A Richmond Highway-area man has been convicted of multiple charges related to an exposure incident involving a 10-year-old girl last summer.  

Jovica Stanisic, 26, was convicted on Feb. 6 of one count of sexual battery and two counts of indecent exposure, all misdemeanors, according to an official at the Fairfax County Circuit Court. He was sentenced to 36 months in jail — 12 months for each charge — with all but eight months suspended.

Stanisic is currently incarcerated at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.

Police arrested Stanisic in August 2016 after a girl reported that a man had exposed himself to her in the Fort Hunt area, not far from Carl Sandburg Middle School. Stanisic was originally charged with taking indecent liberties with children, a felony.

Police said in August that Stanisic exposed and touched himself inappropriately in front of the girl while sitting in his car near the intersection of Stable Drive and Stirrup Lane. Stanisic pulled up next to the girl and her friend as they were walking to a local swimming pool and asked for directions to Carl Sandburg, police said. He drove away after the girl gave him directions, and he did not try to lure the girl into the car, according to the original police account. 

Once released, Stanisic must complete a total of five years of supervised probation, and must register as a sex offender.
