Mark Andrews Manning, 54, is charged with three counts of Indecent Exposure after he showed his genitals to three women in the food court at Magnolia Mall in Florence between May 1 and August 16, according to Major Michael Nunn with the Florence County Sheriff's Office.

Manning was arrested this past Saturday.

Manning served as the Drug Court Coordinator for the Twelfth Judicial Circuit before he resigned last week, according to Solicitor Ed Clements.

Clements said he couldn't comment on the charges against Manning because the investigation is still pending.

Clements also said that his office will not handle prosecution of the case.

Manning has been released from the Florence County Detention Center on a $6,000 bond.

We have attempted to contact Manning and are waiting back to hear from him.
