A serial flasher who exposed himself to women in a north Suffolk village on seven occasions has been jailed for 18 months after a judge said he had “grave concerns” about the risk he posed to women.
On one occasion Kevin Robinson was wearing a blonde wig and a black lacy bra and a pink suspender belt under a trench coat when he exposed himself to a woman in a shop in Blundeston after dark, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
Andrew Shaw, prosecuting, said that Robinson’s face apart from his eyes had been covered with a black scarf and the victim described him as looking at her with a “chilling stare” before flashing at her through the shop window. On another occasion Robinson had jumped out in front of a car dressed in black and wearing a balaclava and had exposed himself to a woman in the vehicle.
Robinson, 29, of Breydon Way, Lowestoft, admitted two offences of exposing himself and asked for five similar offences to be taken into consideration.
Sentencing Robinson yesterday Recorder Christopher Morgan said he had “grave concerns” about the risk Robinson posed to women and in addition to jailing him for 18 months he ordered him to sign on the sex offenders’ register indefinitely.
Christopher Paxton for Robinson said his client recognised he had a problem and felt genuine remorse for what he had done.
