Former inmate charged with four counts of indecent exposure

FARGO—A former inmate at the Cass County Jail was charged Thursday with masturbating in front of four female jailers on separate days while in custody last month.

Montrell Davornshorn Johnson, 30, of Moorhead is also charged with throwing urine at a jailer and stomping on a shower stall door in September.

Johnson, who was transferred to the State Penitentiary in Bismarck, pleaded guilty in September to a separate charge of indecent exposure stemming from an incident in June.

Court documents say that Johnson masturbated in front of female jailers on Sept. 15, Sept. 21 and on two occasions on Sept. 26.

He is charged with four counts of felony Class C indecent exposure, one count of felony Class C contact by bodily fluids and one count of misdemeanor Class A criminal mischief.

In September, Johnson was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to charges of felony theft, felony forgery or counterfeiting, and misdemeanor theft.
