Man jailed for indecent exposure offences and sexual activity in child’s presence
A man has been jailed after causing a child to watch a video of him performing a sexual act and exposing himself in a female toilet block.
Jody Hawkins of Keynsham was sentenced at Bristol Crown Court yesterday (Thursday 29 June) after pleading guilty to seven offences.
The 41-year-old came to police attention in another part of the country in May last year when a teenage girl was contacted directly by Hawkins.
During that call he initiated a sexual conversation and encouraged the victim to perform a sexual act on herself, while he played a pornographic video of himself. The girl refused, hung up and the matter was reported to the police.
In late-October, Hawkins then committed a number of offences against four other victims.
On one evening he was found in a female toilet block in Keynsham exposing himself to a woman. He then showed another woman an inappropriate private photograph of himself a few minutes later and again exposed himself.
That same evening two 16-year-olds reported Hawkins had tried to engage in a sexual conversation with them and showed them the same photograph.
Hawkins, of HMP Bristol, pleaded guilty to the following offences:
Inciting a child to engage in sexual activity
Sexual activity in the presence of a child
Causing a child to watch a sexual act
Two counts of indecent exposure
Two counts of intentional causing fear/harassment/alarm/distress
