'Flashing' Belfast bouncer Paul McCamley loses appeal

A Belfast doorman has lost his appeal against his conviction for exposing himself to a woman at a students' union.

The guilty verdict against Paul McCamley, 34, was upheld after a court heard details about a piercing he once had.

McCamley must now complete his original sentence of 18 months probation and 100 hours community service.

He must also pay £500 compensation to the victim.

McCamley, of Green End, Newtownabbey, County Antrim, has since lost his job for exposing himself with intention to cause alarm or distress.

He denied the offence and claimed instead to have rejected the woman's advances during the incident in June 2009.

But following a three-day hearing, Belfast County Court Judge Derek Rodgers said it was far-fetched to think she would have gone through two trials just to get back at him.
