WAITE PARK, Minn. (KNSI) - The former Principal of Barnesville has been charged with ten counts of indecent exposure.

According to the criminal complaint, Scott Richard Staska walked into three different gas stations in Waite Park, unzipped his pants and exposed himself to store employees between May 22nd 2017 and March 18th, 2018.

Police say he exposed himself five times at the Kwik Trip at 458 Great Oaks Drive, twice at the Kwik Trip at 106 10th Avenue South and three times at the SuperAmerica at 29 3rd Street Northeast.

Investigators say he is suspected of doing the same thing at some Kwik Trips in St. Cloud and at two stores at Crossroads Center. He hasn’t been charged in those alleged incidents.

According to the complaint, the 56-year-old was seen on surveillance video getting out of his vehicle and walking into the stores.

Investigators say, when still photographs taken from the video were shown to Staska, he admitted to being the person in the photos.

Each misdemeanor charge carries a maximum of 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

His next court date is May 15th.

Staska resigned as Rocori’s superintendent a couple weeks after he was arrested on a charge of indecent exposure.

The district has appointed an acting superintendent.
