A DRUNKEN schoolboy boy who exposed himself to a middle-aged woman walking her dogs in Ely is "mortified and embarrassed," a court heard.
The youngster was cycling along Lynn Road in Ely when he approached the woman and told her she was "fit."
The 15-year-old then said: "Look, I have something to show you," and exposed himself to the shocked woman.
When arrested, the teenager told police he had been drinking, and had "done it for a laugh."
The teenager's solicitor told Ely Youth Court: "His is mortified and embarrassed, and found it really difficult to tell his mother what happened. He knows he was incredibly stupid, there was no sexual gratification, but this offence will be on his record, and carries a stigma.
"He feels genuine remorse for the victim, but cannot remember the incident. It is a great shame he acted in this way. He had been drinking with friends, who had some beer."
The boy told the court: I was really stupid, I hardly ever drink, it was a one-off. I would apologise to the woman if I could remember what she looked like."
Magistrates gave the teenager a three-month action plan and ordered him to pay £35 costs.
