Indecent exposure case delayed again

Yolo County court proceedings for one of two suspects charged with an indecent exposure incident in Davis were delayed again Thursday while the pair continue to face federal child-exploitation charges.

A preliminary hearing for 30-year-old Wenyi Xu of Folsom, previously set for Thursday, was postponed to Nov. 27, according to Deputy District Attorney Ryan Couzens. Her codefendant, Nicholas Bowen, 62, of Grizzly Flats, is due back in court on April 16.

Xu is accused of exposing herself to young children bicycling through Davis’ Community Park on July 10 while Bowen photographed the alleged acts. They were arrested after a park worker witnessed the incident and called police. The defendants, both employed as state workers at the time of their arrests, have pleaded not guilty to the allegations.

Two months later, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento announced the filing of criminal complaints alleging Xu made sexually explicit images of her own child, and that she and Bowen shared that and other child pornography material over a six-month period starting on Jan. 1.

Bowen was indicted on Sept. 19 on charges of sexual exploitation of minors and receipt and distribution of child pornography and remains in federal custody with an upcoming court date of Dec. 5, U.S. Attorney spokeswoman Lauren Horwood said Thursday.

Xu, who was not indicted but continues to face the child-exploitation charge, remains free on $100,000 bond and is due back in federal court on Jan. 7, Horwood said.
