A SERIAL flasher who exposed himself to women in a 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.

The terrified woman had screamed for help and Robinson had run off.

On another occasion Robinson had jumped out in front of a car in Church Road, Blundeston, dressed in black and wearing a balaclava and had exposed himself to a woman in the vehicle, said Mr Shaw.

Another woman described Robinson as wearing tights with nothing on underneath when he exposed himself to her and another woman was walking her dog at night when Robinson jumped out in front of her and flashed at her.

Robinson, 29, of Breydon Way, Lowestoft, admitted two offences of exposing himself to women in Blundeston on September 6 and October 18 and asked for five similar offences to be taken into consideration.

The court heard that Robinson had been jailed in 2007 for four years for false imprisonment, sexual assault and unlawfully detaining a child.

Sentencing Robinson yesterday, Recorder Christopher Morgan said the defendant had caused the victims of the offences “real fear and distress.”

He 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. He also made him the subject of a sexual offences prevention order requiring him to notify the police of the make and registration of any vehicle he drove and requiring him to allow police officers to stop and search any vehicle he was seen driving.

Christopher Paxton, for Robinson, said his client recognised that he had a problem and urged the court to pass a sentence which would enable him to receive help under a treatment programme rather than send him to prison.

Mr Paxton said Robinson felt genuine remorse for what he had done and described him as “confused and complex”.
