A school caretaker and scout leader caught performing a sex act in a public place has been spared jail.
Timothy Klesel, of Staines Road, Feltham, was given a two-year suspended prison sentence after admitting two counts of outraging public decency, according to a Met Police statement.
The 50-year-old was sentenced at Kingston Crown Court on Wednesday (May 27), where he was also made subject to a five-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) and told to do 70 hours of unpaid work.
He was first arrested on October 19 last year, after two 16-year-old girls saw him performing a sex act in the street close to a church in Old Farm Road, Hampton, shortly before midnight, police said.
Following enquiries and statements by one of girls, the Met said it transpired he had committed similar offences in Hampton between January and October 2014.
He was charged on March 16 with two counts of outraging public decency, both of which he admitted at Kingston Crown Court on April 29.
Detective Chief Inspector Barry Smith, of Richmond and Twickenham CID, said: "Klesel's behaviour has clearly caused distress and alarm to two 16-year-old girls. Local officers were alerted by the victims and we responded quickly subsequently arresting Klesel.
"An effective and comprehensive investigation has reduced the risk to future victims. This result clearly sends out a message that this behaviour will not be accepted in Richmond and we are committed to bring criminals to justice."
