A pervert who flashed on trains in Kent could be detained in hospital for treatment under the Mental Health Act.
Stefan Turansky appeared at Maidstone Crown Court to be sentenced for two offences of exposure and two of sexual activity in the presence of a child on trains and two of exposure in London.
He was captured on CCTV exposing himself on trains between Dartford and Chatham, Gillingham and Gravesend and Charing Cross and Gillingham on July 29 last year.

British Transport Police said on one occasion Turansky performed an indecent act in front of a woman and her young children.
Another woman from Chatham saw him flashing and touching himself while staring at her.
The 38-year-old, of Mayfair Road, Dartford, was escorted in the dock by two nurses and aided by a Czech interpreter.
Ged O’Connor, defending, said Turansky had been transferred from custody in prison for treatment in hospital and needed further assessment.
Judge Philip Statman at Maidstone Crown Court
Judge Philip Statman said it was important that sentence was passed “one way or another”, but added he was duty bound to hear evidence from a psychiatrist.
The assessment would be to determine whether Turansky should be detained under a hospital order for a specified period or without limit of time.
The judge adjourned sentence until June 27 so that an updated report could be prepared.
