NEWPORT NEWS -- A police officer, who was arrested after allegedly exposing himself on his front porch back in April, was in court Monday, now charged with a felony.

A judge read the charges against Christopher Roush in a Newport News courtroom.  He waived arraignment and is due back in court on June 10. 

On Friday, a Grand jury received additional evidence and filed new charges against Roush.

The list includes one count of felony indecent liberties with a child under the age of fifteen, five counts of misdemeanor obscene sexual display and seven counts of misdemeanor indecent exposure.

Roush used to be known as Officer Chris Miner.  In 2010, he was found not guilty on a charge of abduction with intent to defile.

Roush has been with the police department for nine years. The department's Professional Standards Office will conduct an administrative investigation.
