A pervert who exposed his genitals to a woman and committed sexual offences involving two young girls has been allowed to walk free from Nottingham Crown Court after sentencing last week.
Chesterfield magistrates’ court originally heard on August 12, how Brian Worthy, 65, of Brentwood Road, Bamford, admitted committing the offences.
He appeared at Derby Crown Court during proceedings but his case had been repeatedly adjourned until sentencing on January 24.
District Judge Andrew Davison had told Worthy during the magistrates’ hearing: “The facts are shocking and distressing. It’s disturbing. There were a number of incidents in a short period of time.”
Worthy, who used to work in the pub trade, pleaded guilty to causing or inciting a girl under 13 to engage in sexual activity between June 1 and 5, and guilty to the same offence with another girl on July 17. He also pleaded guilty to intentionally exposing his genitals to a woman in a park in Bamford on July 2.
Defence solicitor Steve Brint said during the magistrates’ hearing that Worthy’s behaviour was new and needed ‘nipping in the bud’.
He added Worthy would have struggled to cope in prison. The magistrates’ court had heard how there was no penetration or any actual contact involved.
Worthy was sentenced to a three–year community order with supervision and was made the subject of a Sexual Offences Prevention Order placing him on a sex offenders’ register.
