A man from Beauceville, in the Chaudière-Appalaches region, faces up to two years in prison for showing himself completely naked in a park in Saint-Georges, a neighboring town.
Kevin Lamothe pleaded guilty to counts of indecent actions on Monday at the Saint-Joseph-de-Beauce courthouse. On three separate occasions, in August and September 2019, the 31-year-old appeared without clothes in front of teenage girls.

Each time, the delinquent hid in a bush near a bicycle path in a park, he undressed and waited for minors to circulate near him to emerge from the bush.
Another such episode occurred in May 2020. The accused, ambushed near the path leading to the Chaudière River beach in Saint-Georges, appeared naked in front of two teenage girls who ran away.
Lamothe also pleaded guilty to an indecent communications manager, for having phoned the receptionist of the hotel of a golf club in the region seven to eight times, on the night of December 15, 2019, asking him if he could. “Leave your clothes in the hotel and go and roll around naked in the snow”. The offender was calling from the parking lot of the hotel in question, which frightened the receptionist who called the police.
According to the Crown prosecutor, Me Marie-Andrée Veilleux, the accused “has a history in such matters”. In addition to a pre-sentence report, the judge ordered the drafting of a sexological report.
The maximum penalty for this type of offense is two years.
Kevin Lamothe is due to return to court on May 26.
