DAVIS COUNTY, Utah – A man who pleaded guilty to accusations that he exposed himself to young child at a retail store in in Layton was sentenced Thursday.

Miles Blakeley, 24, was sentenced to a pair of prison terms of between one and 15 years, and the charges stem from an incident that occurred in Layton and was caught on store security cameras. Blakeley apologized and asked for leniency, and a judge suspended the prison terms and ordered him to spend 300 days in jail followed by restrictive probation.

Police said when Blakeley was arrested officers found child pornography on the man's cell phone.  Blakeley pleaded guilty to several charges as part of plea deal.

Blakeley will also undergo court-ordered sex offender treatment and his name will be added to the state sex offender registry.

A judge gave Blakeley credit for the time he has already served, which means he will likely be out of jail in about 150 days. FOX 13 News’ Scott McKane has more on this story, see the video above for his live report.
