Harding Gets Probation for Coffee Shop Public Indecency Charges
by Bend Weekly News Sources

At Monday’s sentencing hearing, Judge Barbara Haslinger released Garry Harding, the 43-year old Bend man accused of exposing himself at the drive-through windows of at least five different coffee shops and fast food restaurants throughout Bend in August of this year.

Harding was arrested August 28 and was charged with public indecency, criminal trespass and stalking when he later returned to the Oregon Mountain Coffee Company fully-clothed, reportedly to apologize for a previous flashing incident. 

On August 31, after learning of other incidents at different coffee stands and fast food restaurants, detectives added several additional charges. 

Last Thursday Harding pleaded guilty to reduced charges of three counts of public indecency and one count of stalking.

Harding was ordered to undergo sex-offender and mental health treatment, and under the conditions of his probation must have no contact with minors -– including his own children.

Stating that the misdemeanor charges do not warrant a requirement to register as a sex offender, the judge denied the prosecutor’s request that he be compelled to do so.

  • This man is sick and very dangerous to our community. This is outrageous that he has been released. He has already once completed a sex offender program for a sex crime with a minor in Wasco County. It obviously did not work. What makes people think the second time around will work. I hate to think more victims are to come.

  • I completely agree. The judge must be smoking crack to let this guy go with a slap on the wrist.

  • What is wrong with these men? Something need’s to be done to protect our children. The responsibility rest in the hands of the parents, especially those who rush to place their kids in hands of strangers. Use your comment sense, your gut felling, and your instincts. I don’t know who to be angry at more, those who leave their children behind with sick F@#%& or the perpetrators themselves. When are we going to learn to prevent this type of crimes? It takes a village to raise a child. Now a days it takes a community (meaning), neighbors, family members, parents to kill a child. Impressive just how far we have come. You think by now with all we have around us we will at least be civilized and educated but some of us are worst than animals. Some of us need to be put down permanently.
