Man cleared of weighing penis in shop

A MAN accused of weighing his penis on scales in a Scotmid store has walked free from court after being found not guilty of public indecency.

James Jones, 33, of Castleview House, Craigour Crescent, Edinburgh, had denied the charge at the city's Sheriff Court yesterday.

It was alleged that he had his privates visibly exposed to the public and attempted to weigh them on scales used for food stuff in the store in Moredun Park Road on 10 September last year.

Shop assistant Melanie Guglielmino, 31, told Sheriff Neil Mackinnon that Jones told her: "We are just having our privates weighed." Asked what she actually saw, she replied: "He had something on the scales. I didn't see it properly.".

Sheriff Mackinnon found there was not sufficient evidence to prove the precise act and declared Jones not guilty.
