Pervert who exposed himself to children avoids prison


A pervert who was found guilty of indecently exposing himself to children has avoided a prison sentence.

David Gorman, 51 of Beacon Lane, Exeter pleaded guilty to outraging public decency by exposing himself in full view of members of the public, which included young children.

The court was told that perverted Gorman approached several children in the local park. He made a series of sexual comments which resulted in him exposing himself anmasterbating in-front of them.

Gorman was convicted in 2010, after he was caught driving his mobility scooter while almost three times over the drink-drive limit. Gorman has been disabled since 1984, when he suffered an injury during training while he was in the armed forces.

Gorman was given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £100 compensation.
