A man accused of alarming motorists by posing by the side of the road as a woman in need of help has been warned he could be jailed when he is sentenced next month.

Kevin Robinson, 31, of Breydon Way, Lowestoft pleaded guilty at Ipswich Crown Court to causing a public nuisance on August 7 last year by alarming motorists by falsely presenting himself at the roadside as a “bound, vulnerable female in urgent need of assistance.”

Adjourning sentence until April 23 for a pre sentence report Judge Rupert Overbury told Robinson that all sentencing options would be open to the court. “There is no guarantee that you won’t get a prison sentence at the end of the day,” he said.

In December 2012 Robinson was jailed for 18 months after he admitted two offences of indecent exposure with five similar offences taken into consideration.

On that occasion the court heard that Robinson had flashed at women in Blundeston.
