'Desperate' flasher exposed himself twice and performed indecent act
A MAN twice exposed himself to women while performing an indecent act, a court heard.
Keith Daly, 48, committed the offences after falling into a "pit of despair", having lost his job, his wife and his house, Plymouth magistrates were told.
Daly, of Walnut Gardens, Plympton, admitted intentionally exposing himself so that others would be caused alarm or distress on May 18 and May 27.
Claire Tresidder, for the Crown Prosecution Service, said a woman looked out of her window to see Daly standing in the street wearing a dressing gown on May 27.

Mrs Tresidder said she looked again a few minutes later and saw him performing an indecent act. A few minutes later she saw him again standing closer to her house. She waved her phone to show she was calling the police.
In the incident on May 18, two women driving to a friend's house saw him staring at them from his window and performing an indecent act.
Julian Jefferson, for Daly, said: "Up until the last few years he has led a hard-working, blameless life. Then about three years ago, his whole world fell apart. He descended into a pit of depression." He added he had been prescribed pills by his doctor but needed counselling. Mr Jefferson said he also occasionally dabbled with drugs. Magistrates released him on bail to return to court on October 23.
