LaSamuel Richardson III, 25, was charged Thursday in Cass County District Court with a felony count of indecent exposure. Court documents did not list an attorney for him.

According to court documents, the officer was checking on inmates about 2 a.m. June 17, when Richardson asked her a question. Not understanding his question, the officer approached his cell door and saw that he was naked and masturbating, court documents stated.

Richardson then asked her to bring him deodorant. “Really?” the officer said, and Richardson replied, “Oh, sorry,” in what seemed to be a sarcastic tone, according to court documents.

Richardson was previously convicted of indecent exposure in 2011 in Cass County. Because of that conviction, he’s required to register as a sex offender.

He was initially jailed in April on a probation violation and two counts of failing to register as a sex offender. On those charges, which are still pending, his bail was set at $1,000.
