Man Arrested For Filming and Exposing Himself At the Columbia Public Library

A man is now charged with sexual misconduct after filming and exposing himself at the Columbia Public Library earlier this week.

Prosecutors charged James Tharp after an incident at the library on Sunday where someone noticed Tharp acting suspiciously, and appeared to be filming people in the children’s area.

A security guard on duty reportedly got permission to look at Tharp’s phone and saw a video where a woman is at her desk and Tharp’s genitals were in the frame.

According to investigator’s Tharp admitted to video taping girls.

He is a registered sex offender, who has plead guilty to exposing himself at the St. Louis Zoo, and arrested in June for failing to register as a sex offender in Morgan County.
