Mesa man gets 7 years in sex-materials case
MESA - A man who admitted to Mesa police that he put photos of his genitals on about 100 cars in Southeast Valley parking lots from 1999 to 2005 has been sentenced to seven years in prison.
Jeffery Howard Pritchert, 41, pleaded guilty in December to more than 30 counts of public display of explicit sexual materials.
"These offenses occurred over a very long period of time with many victims," Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Sherry Stephens told him Friday. "You had very many opportunities to change your conduct and you did not."
Pritchert has a prior conviction on a misdemeanor count of exposing himself in Scottsdale and three drug convictions.
Police found methamphetamine and a glass pipe when they arrested Pritchert in April.
Defense attorney Kirk Nurmi said Pritchert deserves credit for seeking help.
"In many ways, it's a shame Mr. Pritchert has to go to prison. In many ways, Mr. Pritchert is a changed man," Nurmi said.
