A Lewisham man who exposed his genitals at a bar in Wimbledon has been jailed.

Jeremy Carter, 44, of Curness Street, was at the All Bar One in Wimbledon Hill Road on August 20.

While at the bar, Carter “intentionally exposed his genitals intending that someone would see them,” Wimbledon magistrates were told.

Carter denied the offence but was found guilty in his absence, on October 10.

After being granted bail, he failed to appear at court on two more occasions in October and November.

He was sentenced on November 23 to 18 weeks in prison.

The reason given by magistrates was that “all non-custodial options have been tried and failed.”

Carter was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £115.
