MARTINEZ -- A Danville man convicted of exposing himself to a 5-year-old boy at a 24 Hour Fitness in Moraga was sentenced Tuesday to 90 days electronic home detention and three years probation, and was ordered to register as a sex offender, attorneys say.

Pornthep Suvanasarn, 23, was convicted by jury in July of one misdemeanor count each of indecent exposure, and annoying or molesting a child in connection with the March 14, 2011 incident that occurred when Suvanasarn was a 24 Hour Fitness employee.

The jury acquitted him of two additional misdemeanor counts involving a second child, a girl who was also 5.

Suvanasarn was working in the gym's drop-off child care center when authorities say he exposed himself. He was a Saint Mary's College student at the time but has since graduated.
