A flashing fresher at the University of Lincoln has been found guilty of a public order offence at the Lincoln Magistrates court on Thursday, October 14th.
Daniel Robert Hall, a psychology student of The Junxion, Brayford Wharf East, was sentenced to six months conditional discharge after he exposed his penis to a group of girls during a night out in Freshers’ Week. He was arrested by police in the early hours of the morning on Carholme Road, where the incident took place.
Hall appeared in court last week and admitted threatening behaviour. He returned on Thursday after District Judge Richard Blake withdrew his plea, hoping to see the matter solved by a fixed penalty notice.
However, Lincolnshire Police declined to issue a fixed penalty notice due to previous incidents Hall has been involved in. He was reprimanded in 2008 for a public order offence, and also recieved a fixed penalty notice from police in September 2009 for another incident, both of which occured in Derbyshire.
Judge Blake advised Hall to “slow down”, and suggested he drink less on nights out. On hearing his sentence, Hall said: “It was Freshers’ Week, [I’d] had far too much to drink… It was the alcohol.”
Hall was also ordered to pay £25 in court costs.Tweet
