Prostitute's Penis Description Sends Pedophile Flasher To Prison

"I have such a small one that I would not want anyone to laugh at me."
An accused pedophile and serial flasher claimed he was too ashamed of his small penis to expose himself. But a prostitute hired by the man for several years told a British court that his manhood was normal sized.
 
The woman's testimony helped convict Hinton Sheryn of 18 sex crimes. On Monday he (pictured below) was sentenced to 17 years in prison, SWNS reported.

Author Hinton Sheryn, shown here displaying one of his books, was convicted of 18 sex crimes and sentenced to 17 years in prison. 
The news agency noted that the last-minute witness shredded Sheryn's alibi to police, which was read aloud in the Plymouth, England, court. "One reason I would not expose myself in public is that I have such a small one that I would not want anyone to laugh at me. As far as doing it out on the street or a public place such as that, you have got to be joking."
 
Police found the sex worker after the prosecution had essentially closed its case, providing the contradictory evidence to sway the verdict, according to an article in the Telegraph.
 
The Plymouth Herald reported that the woman also disputed claims Sheryn made about his sexual preferences, further discrediting him. Sheryn, a 68-year-old local author and former music promoter who had evaded accusations for years, was found guilty of indecently touching or exposing himself to four girls and a boy in crimes that stretched back decades.
 
One victim, now a middle-aged mother, said (per the Herald): “He did not care about the destruction he has caused along the way. He can have no shame."
