Mr. God Gets Jail Time For Indecent Exposure

A man who legally changed his name to Ubiquitous Perpetuity God began serving a nine-month sentence for indecent exposure Wednesday.

God, 68, has been convicted 18 times for similar offenses since 1978.

His latest arrest came Oct. 26, when he exposed himself to a woman waiting in line at a coffee shop. He said he did it so that women “could have some type of awareness of God,” according to police reports.

Marin Superior Court Judge Lynn O’Malley Taylor addressed the defendant as “Mr. God” at a hearing Tuesday, and sentenced him to nine months in Marin County Jail.

He will be released to a residential mental health facility if one agrees to admit him, she said.
