Cash and grab perv says crash to blame

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A PERV who groped a woman at a cash ma­chine blamed it on a car crash he had 30 years ago when he went off a CLIFF.

Martin Pea­cock, 49, was stood be­hind her at the dis­penser when he stroked her bum and then smirked when she con­fronted him.

But Mag­is­trates in Llanelli heard his ac­tions could be partly put down to an ac­ci­dent on Gran Ca­naria.

Linda Sher­wood, de­fend­ing, said: “In 1987 he had a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent which left him with dam­age to the frontal lobe of his brain, af­ter which has caused him to be­have in the way he has.”

Pea­cock, of Llanelli, South Wales, pleaded guilty to sex­ual as­sault.

He ad­mit­ted the touch­ing to po­lice and said he had found the woman at­trac­tive and that it was sex­u­ally mo­ti­vated.

The of­fence was in breach of a sex­ual of­fences preven­tion or­der placed on him in March 2009.

Pea­cock was given a two-year com­mu­nity or­der to in­clude su­per­vi­sion and a course to help him avoid of­fend­ing again.

He was also or­dered to sign the Sex Of­fend­ers’ Reg­is­ter for five years.
