Joe Dean "J.D" Bowman Jr. (mug shot SCSO)

A man from Crane has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of sexual misconduct of a child.

Authorities originally charged Joe Dean "J.D." Bowman Jr., 43, with felony charges of sexual misconduct with a child last August after he exposed himself to a group of girls attending a baseball game in Crane.

Bowman was sentenced to 1 year in prison.  That sentence was suspended and he was placed on two years probation and ordered to receive counseling.

Bowman is now required to register as a sex offender, according to Stone County Prosecutor Matt Selby.
