Man jailed for indecent exposure outside a Dagenham school

A man was sentenced to six months in prison after exposing himself outside a primary school.

David Hallas exposed himself in view of an adult in Connor Road, Dagenham, outside St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School just after 7.40am on April 25.

The 48-year-old, of Bennetts Castle Lane, Dagenham, was arrested a short time later and charged with indecent exposure the following day.

He was sentenced to six months in jail at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday, after being remanded in custody following a guilty plea at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on April 27.

Hallas was also disqualified from driving for 24 months for “use of vehicle in the crime” and fined £100.
