Serial Flasher Known As 'The Naked Carpenter' Back Behind Bars

Serial Flasher Known As 'The Naked Carpenter' Back Behind Bars

A serial flasher known as the 'Naked Carpenter' is back behind bars after failing to comply with the sex offenders' register on three separate occasions.

Robert Jenner, 47, admitted the offences just weeks after he was released from prison for wearing a pair of see-through trousers.

The former soldier has been embroiled in legal troubles since 2016, after a decision to do up his house in the nude, despite the protests from outraged neighbours, who ended up with the police getting involved.

Since then, he has been in and out of court for a series of exposure offences.

In 2019, Jenner was jailed for two years after committing ten exposure offences by wearing a pair of jeans with a hole cut in the crotch whilst working as a Hermes delivery driver.

He was subsequently slapped with a seven-year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) and ordered to sign the sex offenders' register for the next ten years, which means he has to report his whereabouts to the police and inform them of any change of address.

But despite this, shortly after his release from prison he soon found himself in trouble again after threatening to sue a witness after tracking her down on social media.

Jenner was then arrested by police once more after they spotted him walking along a high street in Maidstone wearing see-through trousers, after a boozing session at Wetherspoon.

Daniel Stevenson, prosecuting, said at the time: "The defendant was laughing, he called himself Mr Inappropriate. Officers asked if he was wearing anything under his trousers and he said 'socks'."

Jenner was jailed for a year for exposure, malicious communications, and a breach of a CBO.

Prosecutor Lucy Luttman told Maidstone Crown Court that after being released from prison in April 2021, Jenner complied with the notification requirement to sign on every week and told police he was homeless, although he soon started to mislead officers by claiming he had moved to an address on Tonbridge Road which didn't exist.

He was also a day late signing on in May, and then failed to show up again after 1 July.

Ms Luttman told the court that on one occasion Jenner arrived at the police station to sign the register and while doing so, he stripped and began to get naked, however, this was not considered a breach.

Ms Luttman said: "He answered largely 'no comment' in interview, but said he disputed the fact he was a registered sex offender and said he was insulted by the use of the term."

Eve George, defending, told the court: "He served in the Army for ten years. It is possible he is suffering from some form of PTSD, and he will be seeking counselling."

Jenner was sentenced to ten months in jail for each offence to run concurrently, with Judge David Griffith-Jones QC saying that: "It is apparent that you are contemptuous of the normal obligations of a person in modern-day society."

He told him he would serve up to half his term before being released and given his period already spent in custody, 'it may be that you see yourself released very soon'.
