Michael McCadney

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – An Albany man was terminated from his position as a Saint Rose track coach after he was charged in connection to four separate incidents of public lewdness.

“A lot of credit needs to go to the victims in these cases,” Albany Officer Steve Smith said. “We’re dealing with young people who did the right thing.”

Around 3:45 p.m. on December 8, 2015 in the area of Second Avenue and Jeanette Street, police said 31-year-old Michael McCadney was sitting in the driver’s seat of his vehicle when he exposed himself and began to masturbate towards a 16-year-old female and an 18-year-old female who were walking down the street.

Around 3:10 p.m. on January 11, 2016 in the area of Garden Street and Frisbee Street, two females, ages 11 and 12, were walking home from school when they observed McCadney watching them. Both victims told officers that McCadney exposed himself while watching them.

Police said McCadney also exposed himself to three individuals on February 1. The incident took place around 3:30 p.m. Police said McCadney was sitting inside his vehicle when he exposed himself to a 13-year-old female and a 14-year-old female as they were walking on the 200-block of Delaware Avenue.

At approximately 4 p.m., McCadney exposed himself to a 13-year-old female while in the area of Putnam Street and Second Avenue.

“Over the course of the last two months, we received at least one incident in December, one in January, and two latest were on Monday,” Smith said. “We were able to locate our suspect yesterday driving around the same neighborhood and take him into custody.”

McCadney has been charged with four counts of Public Lewdness and four counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

McCadney was arraigned in the Albany City Criminal Court Wednesday morning. Bail was set at $30,000.

He was terminated from his position as the head coach of the Saint Rose track and field team at his arraignment.

Before being named coach for the Golden Knights in 2014, McCadney was a standout athlete at University at Albany from 2006 to 2009 and also coached at the school.

Former athletes who ran with and for McCadney told NEWS10 ABC by phone they were surprised by the allegations. One said it was “out of character” for him.
