Boulder High School coach pleads guilty to indecent exposure, report says

James Kozlowski to be sentenced in February

BOULDER, Colo. -  

A Boulder High School coach has pleaded guilty to indecent exposure after two women reported seeing the man move his shorts to the side and expose himself at garage sales in Longmont.

James Kozlowski, 45, will have judgment and sentencing deferred for two years and will not be allowed to work with children during that time, the Daily Camera reported Thursday.

Kozlowski also pleaded guilty to two counts of public indecency -- a petty offense -- in exchange for the prosecution dropping a second indecent exposure charge.

Kozlowski must register as a sex offender and will have the charge dismissed if he completes treatment and any probation that the judge may assign.

Kozlowski was arrested last August after women said he exposed his genitals at two garage sales organized as part of a neighborhood-wide event in the north-central part of the Longmont.

Longmont police Cmdr. Jeff Satur said at the time that the teacher apparently came to the garage sales wearing shorts and no underwear.

One of the women who called police to report the man talked to 7NEWS at the time about what happened.

"He goes around and looks at everything on the ground. He'll kneel to the ground, one knee on the ground the other still in the air. He'll make eye contact with you and know you're looking at him and the twist his shorts to the side and let it just hang out," said the Longmont woman who hosted one of the garage sales.

She said she recognized him from a similar incident about four years ago.

"I just don't want him to do that to anyone else," the victim said. "I hope he loses his job as a teacher, he doesn't need to be around kids," said the woman.

Kozlowski was the head coach of the girls' basketball team from 1992 until 2001. He was also is the boys' golf coach.  Boulder High School had placed Kozlowski on paid administrative leave after the arrest, pending investigation. 

He'll be sentenced on Feb. 7, 2013.
