r J Indecent Exposure at Penarth ..L A QUESTION FOR THE DOCTORS. At the Penarth Police Court on Wednesday morn- ing, before Major Thornley and District Councillor Morris, George Robinson, an intpllif/ent and respecra- ble looking- man was charged with indecentlv exposing himself at Penarth, on the 22nd inst. Miss Sarah Katherliae Allen, 3, Kymin Terrace, deposed that last Monday afternoon, at 5.10 whilst looking out of the front upstairs window, she saw prisoner with his back turned towards her, surrounded by a number of children, When he turned round she saw that be was exposing himself he didn't stand long in one place, but walked up and down, and when any adult came along be turned up Beach Lane. Among- the children were girls between 11 and IS years old. Witness again saw prisoner under similar circum- stances, 2 houis later. Miss Ellen Ailesi gave confir- matory evidence, adding that when L,-oing for a policeman, Robinson followed her up the back lane. The prisoner when asked if he had any questions to ask, witne3s replied in the negative, but added he had a good deal to say. He had suffered from this afflic- tion since 1887, and had absolutely 110 knowledge of his having committed the offence. For past similar act?? he had undergone various terms of imprisonment, besides paying fines, thus alienating his wife's affec- tions, losing his friends and social position. He had also lost X- 300, and the second time he came out of prison he would not go out alone, being fearful of further committing himself. Wheu first convicted he thought it was a charge trumped up by his enemies, he could not believe he had been guilty of such a thing, and moreover could :not say when it might occur again. He bad been brought up in a moral way, but was evidently irresponsible for his actions, and therefore for the sake of his wife and children he should like to be medically examined. The Bench consequently remanded him for a week pending enquiries and an examination.
