Jailed bum pinch pest told vic­tim his home ad­dress

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A FOOT­PATH sex pest was jailed – after giv­ing one of his vic­tims his HOME ad­dress.

Robert Ver­ney, 30, chat­ted up one woman as she walked to the shops – telling her where he lived be­fore he then started pinch­ing her bum.

He later re­turned to the same spot and tugged him­self off in front of another fe­male vic­tim.

Ver­ney was ar­rested at his home and later ap­peared at Merthyr Tyd­fil Crown Court, where he de­nied sex­ual as­sault and in­de­cent ex­po­sure.

But he was found guilty and sentenced to prison for two years.

Ver­ney, who was de­scribed in court as “scruffy and spotty,” told his first vic­tim that his nick­name was “Marly” and gave her his ad­dress in Fern­dale, Rhondda, South Wales.

Judge Paul Thomas QC told him: “It was an ut­terly pa­thetic thing for a man to­day.

“Your be­hav­iour was com­pletely with­out self-re­straint.”
