Baker guilty of flashing at girls
A BAKER has been convicted of being the flasher seen by teenage schoolgirls on two separate occasions in May.
Sean Eifion Williams had denied outraging public decency but was found guilty on Friday.
He was bailed until October 26 for a pre-sentence report, with “all sentencing options” available.
The 24-year-old was cleared of exposing himself in January after the judge said a girl picked out two possible suspects, including Williams, from an identity parade. “If the honest witness can’t be sure, I have to have regard to that,” said district judge Gwyn Jones.
Williams insisted that he wasn’t the culprit on all three occasions.
Barrister Hannah Horton, defending, said Williams, of Llan-llechid, near Bethesda, didn’t suggest the girls were lying about what they saw, but that it wasn’t him.
But Sheyanne Lee, prosecuting, said Williams had been in the locality in Bangor on each of the days as he picked up a friend.
Williams rejected her claim that on May 9 he had his trousers around his ankles and was performing a lewd act. “I wasn’t there,” he said.
He said the 13-year-old victim on May 18 had described someone else in bushes with his trousers down.
Judge Jones said that, on May 9, the offender in Belmont Road wore the same clothing as Williams had on when he entered a nearby gym 20 minutes later.
The victim also identified him at an ID parade.
The judge told the hearing in Llandudno that Williams’ explanation for his vehicle being in the area on the third occasion was “less than satisfactory”.
He said: “All the circumstantial evidence, together with the defendant’s admission that he was urinating at that spot at the relevant time, is such that the court can properly determine that he was the man who was naked at that spot.”
Describing Williams’ account as “utterly unbelievable”, the judge warned him he could be committed to Crown Court for sentencing.
