BENTONVILLE -- A Bentonville man pleaded innocent Monday to a sexual indecency charge in which he's accused of exposing himself to a 12-year-old boy at a school bus stop.
Brandon Guillen, 23, entered the plea at his arraignment before Benton County Circuit Judge Robin Green.
The boy told police Sept. 26 that he was walking to the bus stop when the driver of a blue Honda said hello to him. The boy saw the car again at his bus stop, and the driver asked for directions to Wal-Mart, according to an affidavit.
The driver motioned for the boy to come closer. The boy told police he got within 4 feet of the passenger window and saw the driver had exposed himself, according to the affidavit. The boy told police that the driver asked him to get in the car, but he refused and walked away, the affidavit said.
Guillen was arrested Sept. 28. He is being held in lieu of $150,000 bond in the Benton County jail.
Guillen was free on $35,000 bond at the time of his arrest. He was arrested Aug. 21 and charged with sexual assault. He has pleaded innocent to the charge. Guillen is accused of sexually assaulting a 7-year-old boy at the Buttered Biscuit in Bentonville when he worked there.
Drew Miller, Guillen's attorney, has filed a motion to reduce his client's bond. A bond hearing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.
