SALEM — The Level 3 sex offender now charged with open and gross lewdness and lascivious behavior for exposing his genitals to a 12-year-old girl a year ago at his then-Gloucester home is asking Salem Superior Court for information pertaining to the girl’s mental health records and criminal history, and is asking that his own interview with Gloucester police be stricken from the case evidence.
Starr H. Lloyd III, a 44-year-old Manchester native, and his attorney, Rosalyn Stults, requested the alleged victim’s mental health records both through a mental health records disclosure filing and through a disclosure of evidence motion. Stults reasoned that the motions should be approved because the girl’s therapist could be used as a witness and because Department of Children & Families (DCF) reports show that the 12-year-old had alleged “inappropriate behavior” and abuse by elder relatives in the past.
A judge will decide on March 13, whether the state must present the girl’s mental history information to Stults and Lloyd. In January, the judge denied a separate request for the girl’s counseling and treatment history that Stults had filed in December.
Lloyd was charged in February of last year, after he was reportedly wearing a long nightshirt and worn boxer shorts and “positioned his body in such a way that ‘his privates’ would be exposed,” to the 12-year-old girl sitting across the room at his home, according to court documents. The girl left the area then returned, and Lloyd repositioned, exposing himself again, according to documents.
Lloyd and the visiting girl had reportedly spent the day playing checkers and video games. The girl’s mother, learning about the alleged exposure the following day, reported the girl’s story to police.
Stults and Lloyd will also learn at the March 13 hearing whether they can expect to be furnished with a list of the state’s witnesses and their criminal histories and the criminal history of the 12-year-old girl and her mother that the pair requested in a Jan. 10 motion filing.
