January 17, 2012 > Indecent Exposure
Submitted By Officer Trish Young, Milpitas PD
On January 10, 2012, Milpitas Police Department officers responded to a reported indecent exposure in the parking lot of the 1100 (B) E. Calaveras Blvd. The victim stated that the suspect had exposed his genitals to her as the suspect walked through the parking lot. The victim drove away and called Milpitas Police.
Officer responded to the area with a description of the suspect that had been provided by the victim. Officers located Joe Maggi in the area of the original incident. Maggi's appearance matched the description provided by the victim. The victim later identified Maggi as the person who had exposed himself. Maggi was arrested without incident.
Upon further investigation, officers determined that Maggi was a registered sex offender. State law requires sex offenders to register within five business days with the local police department in the city which they reside. Maggi was out of compliance by failing to register with Milpitas Police Department when he moved into the city. Maggi was booked into Santa Clara County Main Jail for indecent exposure and failing to register as a sex offender.
