A serial flasher who repeatedly carried out sex acts in public has been banned from Castle Park.
Robert Wharrier was given a suspended jail term after peforming the obscene act in the park in June 2017.
But in May this year the 64-year-old carried out a repeat performance and was found with a pair of women’s knickers.
Wharrier, of Woodland Way in Kingswood, pleaded guilty to outraging public decency.
Judge William Hart jailed him for 16 months, which included the eight months activation of a previously suspended prison sentence.
He told Wharrier: “One might have thought you would have realized people don’t want to see you doing it.”
The judge handed Wharrier an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order banning him from Castle Park or going to any children’s play area, school or school grounds.
Ian Fenny, prosecuting, told Bristol Crown Court Wharrier had a “well-entrenched history” of indecent exposure.
After performing the sex act in Castle Park he was handed a 48-week jail term, suspended for 24 months, but struck again before the sentence had finished.
Mr Fenny said: “It was in Castle Park, in the afternoon, there was good weather and the park was busy with lots of children around.
“Police were summoned, the defendant was arrested and he had a pair of ladies’ knickers.”
The court heard Wharrier had been convicted of some 14 counts of indecent exposure since 1987.
Farah Rashid, defending, said her remorseful client suffered from anxiety and depression.
She said on the day in question he had mixed alcohol with medication and returned to former offending.
