Indecent exposer sentenced for threatening couple

Robert Bond

A 60-year-old man who flashed both a couple near a San Mateo market and a female motorist a short distance away was sentenced Friday to two years in prison for threatening to kill the first pair along with convictions for indecent exposure and drug possession.

Robert Earl Bond, of San Jose, told the court at a sentencing hearing Friday that he was "too old for this lifestyle and wanted treatment," said Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti.

Judge Stephen Hall dismissed Bond's prior strike conviction from consideration, sentenced him to two years prison and ordered him to register as a sex offender for life. Bond has credit of 741 days against the term earned while in custody on $250,000 bail so he will be released on parole rather than transported to state prison.

Bond was arrested March 31, 2012 after a couple reported that while standing near Marina Market in San Mateo around 6 a.m. a man later identified as Bond exposed himself and asked the woman to come with him. The couple ran as Bond yelled he would kill them with a gun. The man struggled with Bond before he walked away and the couple called police. Shortly after, a woman driving nearby said a man exposed himself to her. When police arrived, they reported finding a small amount of cocaine and a pick-like tool on Bond.

In October, a jury convicted Bond of felony drug possession and misdemeanor indecent exposure but deadlocked on the threat charge. Prosecutors opted to retry Bond and instead he took a plea deal on the threat charge plus also admitted having a prior strike. He faced up to five years and four months in prison under the terms of the negotiated settlement.
