Serial sex offender has a ‘compulsion to expose his penis’

A judge told a serial sex offender who flashed at a woman that the man had a “compulsion to expose his penis”.

Stephen Jory, aged 36, appeared at Plymouth Crown Court to plead guilty to indecently exposing himself in the city.

He admitted that the offence on September 22 put him in breach of a Sexual Offences Prevention Order designed to curtail his perverted behaviour.

Jory, from Penzance, made indecent contact and indecent remarks to the woman in contravention of the order made in 2013.

He was jailed for 18 months only a year later for exposing himself to a female doctor in a Cornish surgery.

Handing him a community order for his latest offence, Judge Ian Lawrie told him: “You have a compulsion to expose your penis”.

But he added that he wanted to take a “constructive approach” to tackling his problems. The court heard Jory was moving to Cornwall.

Jory was given a three-year community order with 55 days of intensive probation supervision. He remains under the SOPO for the rest of his life.

Serial sex offender avoids jail

ONLY hours after appearing drunk before magistrates 28-year-old Stephen Jory was found lying on the ground in a bus shelter at Highertown, Truro.

He was being attended by a paramedic, and when police officers spoke to him he became aggressive and was arrested for being drunk and disorderly.

This was revealed by prosecutor Ron Ede at Truro Crown Court on Thursday when Jory, a serial sex offender of St Martins Terrace, Camborne, admitted indecent exposure and breaching a Sexual Offences Prevention Order, one of the conditions of which prohibited him from being intoxicated in a public place.

Mr Ede explained that the two offences were connected and declared: “His offending is dangerous, he is a dangerous man.”

Defending, Jeremy Leaning said Jory had spent 47 days in prison since his arrest.

Judge Nicholas Vincent agreed with Mr Leaning that rather than activate a six-month suspended prison sentence it would be better in the long term to address Jory’s sexual and alcohol problems through a three-year community order. That will involve Jory participating in the Thames Valley sexual programme and an alcohol programme.

“If you are found drunk or do anything of a criminal sexual nature you will be brought back to court and incarcerated for as long as possible to protect the public,” he declared.
