Andrew Phillips

Andrew Phillips, a violent male transvestite, was convicted at Newport Crown Court in 2023 of indecent exposure and criminal damage.

The offence occurred in August 2023 on a grassy area outside Cardiff Castle; Phillips was sitting with two others and wearing a knee-length pink dress which he had hitched up to expose his bottom. The court heard that, as a father and his young daughter walked past, Phillips opened his legs to expose his genitals in a deliberate act. The father attempted to shield his daughter’s view but she asked: “Why did that man open his legs?” There were a number of other children in the area and the police were called. Phillips denied the offence, claiming he was wearing underwear. While in custody Phillips emptied the contents of his colostomy bag and smeared faeces on the wall of his cell and he was remanded to prison for 10 weeks before trial. 

Despite the court hearing that Phillips had 25 previous convictions (including sexual offences), he was sentenced in October 2023 to just 22 weeks imprisonment, which was suspended for 18 months. He was ordered to carry out an accredited programme and a 20-day rehabilitation activity requirement and made subject to a sexual harm prevention order for seven years. The previous offences included the sexual assault of a woman and a case of exposure when he chased a woman in Cardiff city centre and exposed his genitals.
