Exposer sentenced

A San Clemente man was sentenced Tuesday to six months in county jail and three years of formal probation based on a plea agreement for exposing himself to eight girls, including two 14-year-old girls walking on a park trail in Newport Beach, court officials said.

Paul Charles Dishno, 39, pleaded guilty Sept. 19 to two counts of indecent exposure, two counts of child annoyance and three counts of possession of child pornography, according to the Orange County district attorney's office.

On March 3, Dishno exposed himself to six girls while parked outside an Irvine elementary school. The next day he followed the two Newport girls between Ford and Bonita Canyon roads as they walked into a ravine. Dishno whistled at the girls to get their attention, fondling himself. Newport Beach police arrested Dishno, who was identified by one of the girls in a photo line-up. Police later found child pornography on his computer, prosecutors said.
