A PSYCHIATRIC evaluation has been ordered for a man who appeared in Magistrate’s Court accused of exposing his genitalia in a public space.
Ashley Dorsette, 35, of Curtis Road, appeared before Magistrate Constance Delancy facing a charge of indecent exposure concerning an incident on Monday, December 19.
It is alleged that he did willingly and indecently expose his “person in a public place.”
The charge came under Section 212(12) of the Penal Code, Chapter 84 and carries a $150 penalty upon conviction.
However, the accused was not allowed to enter a plea to the charge, as there was concern for his mental health.
Magistrate Delancy ordered a psychiatric evaluation at the Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre and adjourned the matter to January 20, 2017 for a status hearing.
