Man jailed for 37 weeks for exposing himself to lone female on train

Man, 32, is slammed for his ‘horrible hostility towards women’ as judge jails him for drunkenly exposing himself to a lone female on a train HOURS after he’d been released from prison

  • Oliver Trim, from Cardiff, boarded the Bristol-bound train from London’s Paddington Station in June last year just hours after being released from prison
  • When a woman helped him as his bag became trapped when he walked down the aisle of the train, he sat next to her before making advances
  • He repeatedly asked the victim to have sex with him in the train toilets and asked her if she was ‘naughty’, before unzipping his trousers and exposing himself 
  • Trim later sexually assaulted a female police officer by squeezing her bottom – and was handed a 37-week prison sentence

A pervert was slammed by a judge for his ‘horrible hostility towards women’ as he was given 37 weeks in prison for drunkenly exposing himself to a lone female train passenger just hours after being released from prison.  

Oliver Trim, 32, boarded the Bristol-bound train from Paddington in June last year, and was helped by a woman as his bag became trapped when he walked down the aisle.

He then sat near the woman and tried to make conversation with her before revealing he had been released from prison that day. 

Oliver Trim, 32, cried as he was sentenced to 37 in prison after exposing himself to a lone woman on a train, pinching the bottom of a female police officer and using racially aggravated language

Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard Trim repeatedly asked the victim to have sex with him in the train toilets and whether she was ‘naughty’.

After turning down his offer and ignoring his advances, he continued to ask before unzipping his trousers and exposing himself. 

The terrified woman believed he was going to climb on top of her and rape her.

She managed to quickly send a message to friends which prompted police to board the train at the next station and arrest him. 

He sniffed loudly in the dock and was tearful as a judge blasted him for making no attempt to change his ‘horrible hostility towards women’.

District Judge Angus Hamilton said at Westminster Magistrates Court today: ‘His record shows a horrible hostility towards women, that may be made worse when he is drunk’

In a victim impact statement, the woman said: ‘The incident left me feeling disgusted and in some ways angry, upset and frightened about what happened.

‘I didn’t know what to do. If I hadn’t defended myself I believe he would have taken things further.

‘I believed he would rape me. It makes me upset to even think about it.

‘I am incredibly anxious to get on board another service to Bristol.. I don’t know if I will ever feel comfortable getting on a train alone again.’

Trim later assaulted a female police officer by squeezing her bottom. 

The officer said in a statement: ‘I’m a firm believer in being treated fairly and being treated how you would want to be treated.

The terrifying ordeal happened in June last year on a Bristol-bound train after it left London’s Paddington Station (pictured above)

The woman who fell victim to Trim on the train said the incident ‘has had a profound impact on me’, and believed he would climb on top of her and rape her after unzipping his trousers to expose himself

‘This has had a profound impact on me. I felt upset writing this and very teary.

‘Now I feel as if I have had my personal body violated. Although there are no physical injuries I now feel as though this will stay with me for a long time to come.’

Trim was also convicted of calling someone a n***** at Paddington before the exposure incident on the train.

The court heard he was recalled to prison after the incidents and released in April this year.

A report by the probation service said he has missed appointments with them since he was released.

District Judge Angus Hamilton said: ‘Mr Trim seems to be so unmotivated to do anything about his behaviour.

‘These offences occurred the day he was released from prison, he appears to lack the self-discipline to keep himself out of trouble for 24 hours.

‘His record shows a horrible hostility towards women, that may be made worse when he is drunk.

‘He doesn’t appear to be motivated to do anything about his alcohol abuse.’

Jailing him for 37 weeks, Mr Hamilton said: ‘I do believe strongly in constructive sentencing – sentencing designed to tackle an underlying problem.

‘But there are some cases where that simply isn’t an appropriate form of sentencing and I’m afraid in my view you fall firmly into that category.’

As Trim tried to speak over him, the judge continued: ‘Despite the offences occurring in June last year and you being at liberty since April this year, you appear to have done very little to address underlying issues and according to probation services you failed to engage with them and missed appointments.

‘The exposure was a protracted incident where you repeatedly exposed yourself to a woman who appears to have been targeted because she was on her own in a railway carriage.

‘Third is the issue of your record which is appalling and shows a repeated disregard in relation to the safety of women and repeated aggressive assaults on women.’

Trim, of Cardiff, admitted exposure, sexual assault and criminal damage and was convicted after trial of using racially aggravated insulting language.

He was also ordered to pay a fine of £120 for damaging a police cell.
