Man exposed himself behind wife’s back

Man exposed himself behind wife’s back

A man who repeatedly exposed himself to female visitors “literally behind his wife’s back” during get-togethers at his house has been jailed.

Paul Skelly even carried out sex acts in his kitchen in full view of his victims as they sat chatting in his living room, but away from his partner’s gaze.

In two separate indecent exposures women were standing talking to Skelly’s wife with her back to him when he took out his genitalia, showed it to the victim, then put it away.

Cops were only told when one of the victims’ husband confronted the accused, who responded by breaking the man’s nose.

On Monday a sheriff blasted Skelly and jailed him for five-and-a-half months as well as placing him on the sex offenders register for seven years.

Fiscal depute Stewart Duncan told Dundee Sheriff Court that Skelly’s bizarre campaign took place over the course of six years at his home in Carnoustie, Angus.

When caught by police Skelly claimed he had done it because he “felt low” because he was struggling to conceive a child.

But Mr Duncan said: “This account is somewhat inconsistent with the evidence as his behaviour continued long after his wife gave birth in 2012.”

The prosecutor said all the incidents involved visitors to Skelly’s home.

One woman recounted an incident where Skelly appeared in a loosely tied dressing gown that clearly showed him naked underneath.

When the woman left he stood at a window, the gown now fully open, and held his penis while smiling at the woman.

 

Skelly, 37, of Burnside Street, Carnoustie, Angus, pleaded guilty on indictment to charges of breach of the peace, engaging in sexual activity in the presence of four women and assault to injury under provocation.

The sexual offences took place between September 2007 and September 2013, while the assault took place on July 3 2015.

Defence solicitor George Donnelly said: “It is clear he was suffering from a sense of bad feeling relating to his inability to have a child.

“He tells the police the sexual behaviour was some form of release and perhaps a display of masculinity to these women.”

Sheriff Alastair Carmichael jailed Skelly for a total of 168 days and placed him on the sex offenders register for seven years.

He said: “You took the opportunity to do these things literally behind the back of your wife.

“This was prolonged, had elements of planning and was targeted.

“The only appropriate sentence is custody.”
