WEST VALLEY CITY — A convicted sex offender is facing a new felony charge this week after police say two boys saw him taking lewd photographs of himself.

Earlier this month, the 59-year-old man stood on his balcony and took pictures of himself "wearing a woman's thong and a lingerie-type top," according to charges filed Monday in 3rd District Court.

Two boys walking past the house near 1800 W. Homestead Farm Lane (3650 South) saw the man and reported it to their mother, according to the charges.

The man has been charged with lewdness by a sex offender involving a child, a third-degree felony.
