Nottingham teenager sentenced for indecent exposure and child sexual image offences

A ‘depraved’ man who exposed himself to women on multiple occasions has been sentenced to 14 months at a young offenders institution.

Courtney Wingfield, 18, from The Meadows, also had indecent images of children on his phone after it was searched by police.

Wingfield would follow women while riding a pushbike in the Lenton area of Nottingham and expose himself to them.

On two occasions, he sexually touched women while exposing himself in broad daylight.

Wingfield’s series of sexual assaults occurred between 14 June 2020 and 10 July 2020 until was arrested by Nottinghamshire Police after his description matched one given to officers by a victim.

He was sentenced to 14 months in a young offender institution at Nottingham Crown Court on Monday after pleading guilty to four counts of indecent exposure, two counts of sexual assault, one count of harassment and three counts of making indecent images of children a previous hearing.

Wingfield has also been given a sexual harm prevention order which imposes certain conditions on his movements and activities for the next ten years and is also placed on the sex offenders register for ten years.

Detective Constable Mike Jones, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Wingfield’s disturbing actions were utterly depraved and caused an incredible amount of fear for the victims in this case.

“To follow people and know that what you are doing is making them feel frightened but carrying on regardless is truly despicable behaviour.

“It is vile to think that someone would do this and I’d like to praise the brave victims in this case for reporting these incidents to us so that we could take action against Wingfield.

“Sexual assaults are incredibly serious and we will always thoroughly investigate reports with the view to prosecuting offenders.

“If you are a victim of sexual assault please do not hesitate to report it to us. We know how difficult it can be to report incidents like this but please know that professional support and care will be given to all victims.”
