Man Sentenced for Exposing Genitals to Schoolgirls: Sexual Act Offences

 

31-year-old Sebastian Richard McKay has been reportedly labelled a pervert after he revealed his penis to five girls this year.

The court heard that while McKay was seated in his car, he approached by asking them for directions before exposing his genitals to them.

When sentenced, the court imposed a four month term of imprisonment for his offending against the 5 victims in the periods of July and August.

 

The Offending Conducts

McKay first did this to a girl while he was seated inside a hired motor vehicle at a shopping centre in July at Park Holme Shopping Centre.

Then, early morning on 31 July, while seated in a vehicle, he approached a women for directions as she was going to cross a road in Adelaide. The court heard that the women noticed that McKay has his penis exposed from his shorts.

The same day, at about 9am, McKay struck again. While sitting inside the same car, he approached 2 teenage girls in school uniform, asked them for directions while stroking his penis, outside his shorts, in view of the girls.

Only 3 days later, at about lunch time, he called out to another girl in school uniform for directions. As McKay was seated in his car, the girl noticed his exposed penis.

As the Local Court Magistrate sentenced McKay, His Honour said, “It involved impressionable and vulnerable young girls, the long term consequences on whom may not be known or completely felt for many years… Whatever gratification you obtained by your offensive conduct was craven and selfish.”

Whilst his time in custody since his arrest, McKay has been assaulted at the Yatala Labour Prison before being moved for protection to the Mount Bambier Prison.

The law prohibits anyone from committing a sexual act offence in NSW, if it is done without consent of the other person, knowing that that person does not consent to it, under section 61KE of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW).

Anyone who commits this offence will face up to 18-months imprisonment or $5,500 fine, or both.

Where a person commits this offence against a victim aged 10-15, the maximum penalty is two-years imprisonment (section 66DD). This maximum penalty rises to 7-years imprisonment is the victim is aged 10 or less.
