Mental Health Application Successful for Indecent Exposure


Our client is a 26-year-old man undertaking a Masters of Accounting degree.

On his first and second day of studies, he exposed himself to two visiting high school students in the throes of physical pleasure. Each complainant reported the matter to university security.

On the third day at the university, our client was recognised by security from CCTV footage of the incidents, and duly apprehended. The police attended and charged him with two counts of ‘Act of Indecency’.

We viewed the incriminating footage, and negotiated a series of amendments to the police ‘facts’.

We referred our client to a psychologist who provided a detailed report about his condition and placed him on a treatment plan.

In court, the Magistrate discharged our client without a conviction or a finding of guilt under Section 32 of the Mental Health (Forensic Provisions) Act (NSW) 1990.

Our client can move on with his life conviction-free provided he continues to get the help he needs.
