OSSINING, N.Y. - Jeffrey Wrightman told a judge Tuesday, May 1, that he will be seeking therapy after he was arrested and charged with public lewdness for exposing himself to an adult patron at the Ossining Public Library last week, according to the court.

Wrightman, 60, of White Plains, taught AP U.S. History at Somers High School but was placed on administrative leave when the district learned of the incident from Ossining Police on Thursday, April 26. He's been employed by the district since 2003.

Wrightman was represented by Jane Gould of Gould & Berg, LLP, before Ossining Town Justice Nancy Koba. Gould did not immediately return calls for comment.

According to police, Wrightman was on the second floor of the library in an open study area when he took out his genitalia and it was seen by an adult patron.

Ossining Police Chief Kevin Sylvester said Wrightman does not have a prior criminal record but encouraged anyone who may have had a similar interaction with Wrightman to call the department.
