Horry County grand jury indicts Conway attorney on indecent exposure charges

A Conway attorney, who was suspended from practice earlier this year, was indicted on two charges he exposed himself to people in 2006, according to Horry County grand jury indictments.

Jefferson Marion “Buddy” Long, 50, of Myrtle Beach, was indicted on two counts of indecent exposure, according to indictments released Tuesday. The charges allege Long exposed himself between Jan. 1, 2006 to Dec. 31, 2006.

In March, the S.C. Bar Association placed Long on interim suspension pending the outcome of the criminal charges against him.

Long was arrested on Jan. 27 and Nov. 24 on charges he exposed himself to several people at his home and his business, according to police.

Neighbors of Long reported that he had exposed himself to them on several occasions during the spring and summer of 2006 and police arrested him on two counts of indecent exposure in January. Long posted $2,000 bail and was released, according to jail records.

Long was charged with indecent exposure in November after two women reported on separate occasions that a man had exposed himself while standing in front of the clear glass storm door at Long's law office in Conway. The second woman said she saw the man standing completely naked in front of the storm door.

Long was released on a $30,000 personal recognizance bond after that arrest.

According to an Horry County police report about the 2006 incidents, two girls, ages 12 and 18, said Long exposed himself by standing naked behind the glass storm door to his house on Six Lakes Road. They told police it happened between 20 and 30 times while they were in their front yard and that Long would stand at the door facing the street where traffic and passersby could see him.
