(Woodland, CA) – Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig announced today that on March 6, 2015, a Yolo County jury convicted 46-year-old Vladimir Vecherkovskiy, of Sacramento, of two counts of lewd conduct, two counts of indecent exposure, and one count of battery.
On August 13, 2012, Davis Police officers responded to the Common Grounds coffee shop in Davis to investigate complaints of a man engaging in lewd behavior. By the time police arrived, Vecherkovskiy had left, but not before a victim took a photograph on her cell phone.
On October 21, 2012, Vecherkovskiy returned to the same coffee shop and again engaged in lewd conduct. The store owner recognized Vecherkovskiy and Davis Police arrested him.
Deputy Attorney General Craig Meyers, who prosecuted the case while on special assignment with the Yolo County District Attorney's Office, said the jury's verdict would not have been possible without the courageous testimony of the victim and the dedicated efforts of the Davis Police Department.
The case was presided over by Judge Daniel Maguire, who will determine sentencing for this matter on April 3, 2015, at 3:00 p.m. in Department 7 of the Yolo County Courthouse.
