A flasher had a prison sentence for sexual assault hanging over him, and was waiting to be handed another, when he exposed himself to a woman taking the bus to work.I guess she was taking the bus to work. Not him?
A judge had already given him a 50-week prison sentence, suspended for two years, at Blackfriars Crown Court last May, after he sexually assaulted a woman on a train in February. He was also put on the sex offenders register.
But, less than a month later with the prospect of prison in the background, he sexually assaulted another woman in a nightclub. He was handed another suspended prison sentence, of 15 months, when a judge, this time at Reading Crown Court, sentenced him in January this year.
Willis has been warned he could face prison at Kingston Crown Court when he is sentenced for indecent exposure.Only ‘could’..?
As Anna Raccoon points out, it could be oh-so-different if he'd only take up a hobby...
Oh I have an even better one...
Sex attacker who flicked 'a strange substance' at schoolgirls spared jail
Dr Paul Strickland wrote in a psychiatric report: “Sending him to custody would be a fruitless, punitive exercise.”
Punitive exercise? Jail? Wow, who would have thought of that. I would like to nominate this for the Mitigation Wibble Awards 2013. I also found the 'fruitless' remark a little ironic considering the nature of the 'sex attacks'. Does anyone else think Dr Strickland is taking the piss? Just a little bit?

Today's flasher is tomorrow's rapist or child abductor. The fact that so many seem to continually receive suspended sentences may say more about the Judiciary than anything else. When living in Wales several years ago recall a woman kicking a flasher in the goolies, putting him in hospital with ruptured testicles. I think she got 8 months - not suspended.
"Punitive exercise? Jail? Wow, who would have thought of that."
GAH! What a cretin!
"Today's flasher is tomorrow's rapist or child abductor. "
Maybe. It's not a totally linear progression.
