PINSON, AL - A convicted sex offender is accused of exposing himself to people in grocery store parking lot in Pinson.

According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, 41-year-old John Allen Racine was seen inside the grocery story with a small child on May 5, the same day as the alleged indecent exposure incident.

Investigators used photos of the suspect’s license plate to track him down.  He was arrested on May 14 at a home on Walnut Grove Road in Pinson.

Racine was placed in the Jefferson County Jail on bonds totaling $21,000.

He was originally convicted in Florida in 2008 performing a sexual act in front of a 12-year-old male victim.
