A CONVICTED paedophile who lived opposite a sweet shop has walked free despite exposing himself in public and fighting with police.
Pervert Colin Davies, 49, had already served time for downloading and possessing sick photos of children being raped.
Davies, from Bootle, Merseyside, was told to sign on the Sex Offenders Register and obey a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for 10 years.
However, after his release from jail, he exposed his genitals and bottom to a number of shocked bystanders, before clashing with police officers called to the scene, the Liverpool Echo reported.
A woman rang police on August 30 after Davies was seen ranting at the window of his first floor, before pulling down his trousers and exposing himself.
Police were called but when they arrived, Davies aggressively lashed out at them.
Davies claimed he had been insulted by local youths who called him offensive names and taunted him.
Judge Robert Warnock handed him a six-month jail term and told him to sign on the Sex Offenders Register for seven years.
However, since he had been held on remand since the incident in August, it meant the prison term had effectively already been served.
He was therefore released last week.
