A serial flasher waved his penis at passing traffic and waited in the dark for women to pass by in a “campaign of depraved behaviour”.
Dale Keiron Topping, 26, from Anglesey in north Wales, exposed himself three times over two months at the end of 2019 and at the beginning of 2020.
In the first incident, he parked his car on a lay-by on the A5 in Anglesey on November, 6, 2019 and waited in the dark for a female jogger, North Wales Live reports.
When one eventually ran past, Topping was stood there “with his penis out, his hands on his hips and smiling at her”, Mold Crown Court heard.
He then slapped her bottom as she tried to run past.
On December 22, 2019, Topping exposed himself again on a footbridge over the A55 near the village of Llanfairpwll – with witnesses including a family in a car.
The judge said: “Your hand was in the air and you were waving your penis at the traffic.”
On January 8 last year, he spotted two women joggers in Gwynedd.

As they approached him, Topping pulled his trousers down and exposed himself.
He was caught after the women got into their car, drove past him and took a photo of him.
Topping denied exposing himself three times and denied committing sexual assault.
However, he was convicted after a trial.

Prosecutor Simon Mintz said Topping's first victim now carries a personal attack alarm and her husband worries about her welfare when she’s out running.
Another jogger said she avoids the area where Topping exposed himself.
A third victim, who saw him expose himself on the footbridge from a car, feels “nervous, anxious and vulnerable”.
Jonathan Austin, defending, said his client was of previous good character, has now stayed out of trouble and helps his family business.
He lost his job as a mechanic when the allegations were first made.
But the judge, his Honour Judge Rhys Rowlands, said his crimes would have been “terrifying” and were committed for his own sexual gratification.
He told Topping the offences were “fast turning into a campaign of depraved behaviour”.
The judge added: “I see no evidence of remorse or indeed of understanding of how wrong your behaviour was.”
