A business professional who was sacked after exposing himself of his workplace window three times has been given 18 months supervision by magistrates.

William Faulkner, 52, of Chartwell Close, Clayton-le-Woods, was seen touching himself by women using a smoking shelter at the back of his then workplace, Akinika in Preston’s Winckley Square district.

Faulkner, who worked there for five years and was responsible for the computer servers used by 29,000 employees, pleaded guilty to three counts of exposure.

Preston Magistrates’ Court, which ordered him to pay £600 costs and £100 compensation to his two victims, heard the first woman saw him expose himself moments after talking to him in the smoking shelter.

Prosecuting, Martine Connah said: “She questioned what she had seen because she was so shocked.”

But the same victim saw Faulkner exposing himself again between January 20 and 29, 2013, and this time she reported the matter.

Another woman saw Faulkner touching himself on April 23, 2013, at 8.45am, and disciplinary proceedings were launched.
