Officer denies exposing himself in Brixham Police Station and shops
A former policeman is to face trial in front of a jury at Exeter Crown Court after pleading not guilty to exposing himself in Brixham Police Station and three shops.
David Salsbury, aged 39, denied the four offences when he was arraigned at a plea and case management hearing.
The former officer, of Stoneycombe, Kingskerswell, pleaded not guilty to four counts exposing himself in a way which was likely to cause alarm and distress.
The four offences are alleged to have taken place at Brixham Police Station on June 16 last year; the Co-op in Fore Street, Kingskerswell on October 14, 2012; the Circle 8 store in Queen Street, Newton Abbot on October 14, 2012; and the Pets at Home shop at Newton Abbot 12 days later.
Judge Erik Salomonsen ordered prosecution and defence barristers Mr Peter Coombe and Mr David Sapiecha to fix a trial date as soon as possible.
He ordered that all remaining evidence must also be exchanged promptly and said the trial is likely to need a two to three day time slot.
All the allegations relate to a time when Salsbury was still a serving officer with the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary.
