A teenage girl has been caught on camera masturbating in public in broad daylight as people watched in shock. The teenager has been charged to court after she was filmed pleasuring herself on a bench on Lemon Plaza in Truro. The girl told magistrates she had no recollection of the event and it was a "massive source of embarrassment." The 19-year-old, of no fixed address, told officers after her arrest that she did not remember anything about it. She pleaded guilty at Truro Magistrates’ Court to intentionally exposing herself, intending that someone should see, and causing alarm or distress; and to criminal damage to a window costing £100 to repair.
It was gathered that the teenager was heavily intoxicated during the period before she was taken away by the police. After her release she went to her family home where she broke the window. She has serious problems with drinking and drugs. She had broken a window at the family home, at which she was not welcome, because she believed her dog was inside, and not being cared for, and wanted to retrieve it.
The case was adjourned for three weeks for a full probation report.
After failed efforts made by Pearce and several court officers to find her accommodation, defendant was remanded in custody until May 4.
The chairman, Roger Cargeeg, told her the magistrates were concerned for her protection.
