A HOMELESS woman has been banned from a laundrette after outraging public decency and being drunk and disorderly.

Michelle Louise Meech stripped off her clothes and behaved in an indecent manner at the Laundry Lounge in Pokesdown, Bournemouth on December 1 last year.

She admitted being drunk and disorderly and outraging public decency when she appeared before Poole magistrates.

The 41-year-old also pleaded guilty to intentionally exposing her genitals, intending that someone would see them and be caused alarm or distress, on two occasions. The first instance took place in Christchurch Road, Bournemouth on April 20 last year and the second eight days later in Southbourne Grove, Bournemouth.

Meech also admitted sexual touching of a woman when she did not consent on April 20, causing damage to the Laundry Lounge on December 1 and failing to surrender to custody on February 3 this year.

She was jailed for 12 weeks, handed a restraining order and ordered to pay £50 compensation to the Laundry Lounge.
