A man who exposed himself to 2 schoolgirls has blamed his behaviour on depression and a breakdown after his wife suffered a miscarriage.
Andrew Taylor, an IT consultant has now been sentenced to 30 month community and supervision order, which will also involve attending a sex offender’s programme.
Andrew was seen in his car outside Simon Langton Girls Grammer School in Canterbury by the students as they waited to be collected by parents, magistrates heard. When parents started to arrive, Andrew drove off; though the girls told their parents, took down the number plate and reported it to the police.
When later interviewed he denied the offence and claimed that the girls had ran out in front of the car, so he pulled over to compose himself and was ‘adjusting’ his coat. Though when put before Canterbury magistrates he pleaded guilty.
