A BARRY man has been given a suspended jail sentence and ordered to register with police for seven years, after he admitted exposing himself to three youngsters.
Michael Andrew Reeves, aged 32, of Cei Dafydd, appeared at Cardiff and Vale Magistrates Court on October 5 for sentencing, and was given 12 weeks in prison, suspended for 18 months with supervision, alcohol activity requirement, and 120 hours unpaid work.
In a previous court appearance he had admitted intentionally exposing his genitals, intending to cause alarm or distress. He had initially denied the charge but changed his plea to guilty in September.
The court heard that the offence took place at Porthkerry Road on April 15.
Sentencing him, magistrates said the offence was committed in front of three children in public during the daytime; that intimidation was used during the commission of the offence; and that he was under the influence of alcohol.
He must pay £100 compensation to each of the three victims and £135 court costs.
