An Albany man is facing charges after people at the NYS Museum complained about the man's lewd activities. Steven Dressel, 56, was arrested for public lewdness, a misdemeanor, for masturbating near the Fulton Fish Market Exhibit.
The New York State Police at the Capital in Albany investigated a complaint. He was arraigned at the Town Of Guilderland court Thursday night. The judge ordered a psychiatric evaluation.
Dressel's arrest comes eight months after another sexually-related arrest. In June 2013, Edward Tubbs, 22, was arrested for sexually abusing a six-year-old boy in the restroom. Tubbs was later sentenced to four years in prison as part of a plea deal.
At that time, the museum said it would install more security cameras.
