WEST MAITLAND COURT.

Monday, March 21.

(Before Mr WH Cleeve, PM.)

WILFULLY EXPOSED HIMSELF.

    Howard Wilson pleaded not guilty to a charge of having indecently exposed himself.

    Constable Moran gave evidence that he saw Wilson committing the offence alleged on the Park yesterday afternoon.

    Wilson denied the charge.

    The Magistrate convicted. He said Maitland Park was a place for recreation, and if people were to behave like Wilson did it would not be safe for parents to send their children there. He sentenced Wilson to six months’ imprisonment, and said he hoped it would act as a warning to defendant as well as to others.

    This comment was made by Mr Cleeve, PM, at West Maitland police court to-day when passing sentence on Howard Wilson, a middle-aged man, who was convicted for indecent exposure. Wilson had pleaded not guilty.
