A woman accused of having sex Monday morning in a parked car in downtown Burlington also faces charges of child endangerment.
Burlington police were dispatched about 9 a.m. to North Main Street - not far from the police station - after a caller reported two people were naked in a car.

Aren't these two charges really the same thing? ;-)
I would say technically no. But one is likely to be thrown out and the other persued. Obviously the indicent exposure could happen while standing on your porch. But the driving while barred can only happen while driving.
Furthermore, at least the woman (we don't know anything about the man's relationship to the child) is endangering the child by dumping him unattended on a public street to fend for himself. I've never heard even the most extreme libertarians suggest that adults have no responsibility whatsoever for the young children they produce or voluntarily take charge of.
Couple Charged With Sex Crimes
A West Allis (WI) man and his girlfriend have been charged with first degree sexual assault and causing a child to view or hear sexual activity.
The child in the case, an 11-year-old girl, is the woman's daughter.
David Hughes, 33, a resident of the 2000 of S 77th St, and the girl's mother, who is not being named to protect the girl's identity, reportedly exposed the girl to pornographic videos at Hughes' house, a criminal complaint states.
The girl told police that many times when she went to Hughes' house, he would be naked and would, at times, masturbate while she was in the room.
The complaint states that the girl's mother, 43, told police that any time she wanted to go to Hughes' house, he insisted she bring the girl with her.
The woman reportedly told police she knew taking her daughter to Hughes' home was a mistake, but did it because she wanted to see him.
Hughes and the girl's mother are in custody at the Criminal Justice Facility. They will make a preliminary court appearance this week. Each could spend up to 75 years in prison if convicted of all charges.
