Redwood City man denies charges that he exposed himself, offered oral sex to cop

A Redwood City man has pleaded no contest to charges of attempted car theft, indecent exposure, and bribery of a police officer after he exposed himself to two people and offered a cop oral sex on New Year’s Eve.

At 7:30 p.m. Sunday, December 31, Kevin Frank Adkins, 34, allegedly approached a man who was sitting in his car after delivering a pizza and asked him for a ride to Safeway “so he could buy a cucumber to use [as] a dildo,” according to a summary by San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Adkins’ pants were down and his genitals were exposed, said Wagstaffe.

When the victim refused Adkin’s request, Adkins allegedly got in the car “holding a metal object,” the DA said. After the victim took his keys, got out of the car, and called 911, Adkins “slid over” to the driver’s seat, realized the keys were gone, got out, and walked off, said Wagstaffe.

Twenty minutes later, a second victim was walking his dog and saw Adkins approaching him “with his genitals exposed and carrying a metal object,” according to Wagstaffe. “He called 911 and police arrived quickly.”

Responding police saw that Adkins’ genitals were still exposed and that he was carrying “a large kitchen lighter bent into an L Shape,” said Wagstaffe, who added that Adkins was under the influence of methamphetamine.

Adkins was arrested, and on the ride to the police station, he “several times offered to oral[ly] copulate the officer if the officer would let him go,” said the DA. At the station, Adkins “started masturbating in front of the officer.”

Adkins, who’s in custody on $100,000 bail, pleaded no contest Wednesday, January 3 to felony bribery of a police officer and misdemeanor charges of attempted car theft and indecent exposure in exchange for prosecutors agreeing not to seek a state prison sentence. 

Instead, Adkins was ordered to serve 90 days in county jail and placed on three years of supervised probation. He also must register as a sex offender, complete a treatment program, and abstain from drugs and alcohol, among other conditions.

Gerritt Rutgers, the attorney from the county’s Private Defender Program who was appointed to represent Adkins, didn’t respond to a request for comment.
