'Extremely large' tradie guilty of indecency, told to destroy shorts

A CABINET-MAKER has been ordered to destroy his skimpy work shorts after exposing himself to eight women while performing renovations on their kitchens, a court has been told.

Mark Stephen Owen, 50, pleaded guilty in the Brisbane Magistrates Court today to 12 counts of performing indecent acts at various Brisbane homes between 1999 and 2008.

Prosecutor Lewis Shillito told the court Owen wore skimpy shorts or stripped down to his underwear while he worked, allowing what the women described as an "extremely large" penis to poke out from the fabric.

The court was told Owen would also masturbate in front of the women, aged between 45 and 83, and rub cream onto his exposed genitals while complaining of a rash.

Mr Shillito said Owen's actions made the women feel uncomfortable but that all allowed him to finish the renovations.

Only one woman initially reported Owen to the police but more came forward after police made a public appeal for help.

Owen, from Victoria Point, was given a nine-month jail term for the offences but was released immediately on probation for three years.

He was also fined $1000 after pleading guilty to two counts of possessing child abuse computer games.

Magistrate Noel Nunan ordered Owen's work shorts, which were seized by police, be destroyed.

He also refused Owen's request for the return of penis rings he had worn to work to enlarge his genitals.

Hunt for Worthing "poo thief"

A bag-snatcher on a bicycle pinched a bag of poo from an elderly dog-walker in Worthing.

The thief rode past the pensioner near the Post Office in High Street, Tarring, and grabbed a bag she had been using to clean up after her dog.

A spokeswoman for Sussex Police said: "A male on his pushbike came past her and snatched the bag, perhaps thinking that there was something of value inside.


The readers comments are worth a look.
