Convicted sexual predator accused of exposing himself to girl at Aquatica, report states

ORLANDO, Fla. — A convicted sexual predator is accused of exposing himself to a girl at Aquatica earlier this month, according to an arrest report.

Gerald Youmans, 52, is facing a lewd exposure charge after Orange County deputies allege he exposed himself to a girl while sitting on a bench in the water park, records show.

The girl’s family was visiting the water park Feb. 9 when the incident occurred in the dolphin viewing area, the report states.


When the family confronted the man, they said he walked out of the park and got into a silver Honda sedan, which investigators determined was registered to Youmans, the report states.

The victim described how the man exposed himself in an interview with forensic investigators before identifying him in a photo lineup, according to the report.

SeaWorld security officers determined Youmans is an annual pass holder and had been in the park Feb. 9, the report states. Officials said he had visited Aquatica 33 times in the last three months.

Records with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement indicate Youmans was convicted of exposing himself to a minor in Palm Beach County in 2004.

Last year, he was arrested in Palm Beach County for inappropriately touching himself in front of a child, court records said.

He is being held in the Orange County Jail.
