A Tallahassee man is behind bars 6/28 after allegedly exposing himself to children. Some of these details are graphic.

Leon County Deputies arrested 29-year-old Marcono Clary at his home off Chloe Circle Tuesday for exposing himself to children back on June 10th while they were walking on the St. Marks Trail.

Timothy Swaney a Woodville resident said, "I see families riding bike out there all the time. That's a family place. They don't want to see some grown man come up naked. Nobody wants to see that."

The youngsters, ages 15,13 and 6 told deputies, they were walking on the Trail in Woodville near Chloe Circle when a man came up to them and pulled down his pants.

Clary driveway leads right to the St. Marks trail and the kids told deputies when they tried to run, he followed after them."

Nancy Bodiford a concerned Woodville resident said, "Best not do that in front of my grandchildren. That's all I've got to say."

"I don't want my little brother and sister seeing some grown man showing off what he's got." said Swaney.

The detailed description from the three children led investigators to Clary's door step.

"There's perverts everywhere out there. They're all over the place. You just have to watch your children very well." said Bodiford.

Resident Pat Cardinale added, "I just don't think I'd let them (the children) go out until I knew this person had been put away. You know, because you never know how far someone like that will do. If they do their pants, they may go further than that."
Tallahassee, FL - On June 10, 2011, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office responded to an investigation in reference to a man exposing himself to three juveniles who were walking on the St. Marks Trail near the area of Chloe Circle. The children, ages 15, 13 and 6 were walking on the trail when a man approached them and pulled his shorts down, exposing himself to them. As the children began to run away, the man chased after them briefly. All three children described the man as a thin but muscular black male in his 20s or 30s. They also said the man was near the 3000 block of Chloe Circle when this incident took place.

On June 28, 2011, Violent Crimes detectives contacted Marcano Clary, 29, at 3010 Chloe Circle. Clary was interviewed and arrested after describing the circumstances reported by the three children and
indicating his involvement in this incident.

    While what this young man did was wrong and I in no way condone his behavior it's important for everyone to understand the mental illness is beast and he suffers and has been suffering from mental disease for quite some time now. I'm not saying that is an excuse to show your genitals to kids, but what he really needs is help not to be shot. What he did was wrong maybe now he will get the help that he so very badly deserves.

    I'm a concealed carrier and would love to have had the honors of scaring the intent out of his mind...if you know what I mean. I have never carried on the trail but looks like that is the next step...

    In the news today, teenage girl castrates pervert using light saber. The girl said "Violent video games gave me the courage to defend myself and friends". No charges will be filed against the girl who was "standing her ground". Film at 11:00.

    Yeah hide behind your State Worker thing instead of proudly showing who you are you coward. Quit whining because you don't get a free ride anymore that was unfairly negotiated in the first place.
