Pervert Longford flasher told to sign sex offender's register

Warrington Guardian: Halton Magistrates Court Halton Magistrates Court

A PERVERT who whistled at a 16-year-old girl before flashing her has been ordered to sign the Sex Offender’s Register.

Carl Robert Spero, aged 20, of Densham Avenue, Longford, exposed himself in two incidents in Warrington.

He performed a sex act on himself to a 16-year-old girl in Orford on November 16, last year.

And on September 3 last year, Spero flashed a 49-year-old woman.

She was also walking in Orford when Spero performed a sex act on himself.

The former Padgate High student had denied the charges and claimed to be urinating to police.

He was sentenced for two counts of exposure at Halton Magistrates Court last week.

The defendant was also sentenced for one incident of assault, and one of obstructing a constable in execution of duty.

He will be registered as a sex offender for five years, and will undergo the Northumbria sex offender’s programme.

Spero will also be subject to three years of supervision.

In the past few weeks six different sex offenders have been convicted in the town, ranging from wierdos like Mr Spero here up to a full blown predatory paedophile rapist.
Something is very wrong, and it seems to be getting worse.

It could be down to what the guardian decides to report, rather than an increase in such cases.

An increase in prosecutions could be a result of the Police and CPS (finally) taking such incidents seriously.

As shown by the case of the known and convicted sex offender who, nonetheless, was still able to abuse and rape young girls for years, it seems that somebody in authority wasn't taking such incidents seriously for quite a while.
It's to be hoped that you're right and that the Police and CPS are now on the ball.
