Kenneth Ray Burton is a "career flasher." Or so say prosecutors, and a judge in Redwood City, Calif., agrees.

Burton, 52, was sentenced to 13 years, four months in prison for showing off his dangly bits to a woman on a train.

The Associated Press reports:
Police arrested Burton last year after he allegedly began masturbating in front of a woman on a Bay Area Rapid Transit train.

Prosecutors sought the lengthy prison sentence because Burton already had two prior convictions for indecent exposure and a previous conviction on six counts related to sexual assault, San Mateo County Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said. ...

"Our concern was, 'Are we being too lenient? Are we adequately protecting the public?'" Wagstaffe said. "We have a person here who has done this for many, many years. And with all likelihood, he will be doing it again."
The reaction from his fellow inmates should be interesting.
