Man exposed himself to boy
A NINE-year-old boy saw Anthony Williams exposing himself while sitting in a car, and reported the indecent act to his mother.
The child’s mother went to investigate and also saw the 37-year-old exposed, Fenland magistrates were told.
She saw that Williams had a laminated map on his lap at the time, and another woman walking past had been visibly upset.
Williams, of Musticott Place, Walsoken, had denied a charge of committing an act that outraged public decency, but was convicted after a trial last month.
This week he was back at Wisbech court, when Fenland magistrates decided to commit Williams for sentencing to Cambridge Crown Court.

“Your are still in denial and a young child had to give evidence at your trial,” he was told by magistrates. “We feel our sentencing powers are not sufficient.”
Williams had received a caution in 2002 and a conviction in 2003 for exposing himself, the court was told.

Solicitor John Clarke said: “I think he is a socially isolated person, I think a suspended prison sentence would be the best deterrent.”
