OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -

A Johnson County, KS man is accused of exposing himself to a minor, and it turns out this may not be an isolated incident.

Joseph Bycraft went before a judge Tuesday in Johnson County. He's charged with felony lewd and lascivious behavior. He is accused of exposing himself to a girl under the age of 16.

Bycraft was booked into the Johnson County Jail just after midnight Tuesday. He was arrested at his home in Overland Park.

The 39-year-old has a history of lewd and lascivious charges dating as far back as 2002 to last year. He spent a good chunk of time behind bars the last time. It remains to be seen what'll happen this time. It appears this is the first time a child was involved.

"This is not acceptable," neighbor Jelissa Green said.

Green couldn't believe it when she found out her neighbor, who she said always seemed like a nice guy, had been charged with the crime. And the fact that she has two small children including an 8-year-old little girl herself rattled her nerves.

"I don't think he should be allowed to be around a whole bunch of kids especially because everybody around here has kids," Green said.

Bycraft posted bond. He's due back in court at the end of the month.
