Have your say

A MAN who was sent to jail for faking a residents’ parking permit is also serving sentences for indecent assault and possession of indecent images of children, it has emerged.

Mark Rouse, 48, made headlines earlier this week after he pleaded guilty to one offence of intending to deceive under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and one count of making an article indeed for the use in fraud under the Fraud Act 2006.

Rouse faked a permit for his car in a residents’ parking zone which was spotted by a council worker in July 2014.

He was sentenced to 16 weeks in prison at Portsmouth Magistrates Court.

This prison term will be added to the existing prison sentences which he is currently serving.

Earlier this year Rouse, of Wilton Terrace, Southsea, pleaded guilty to the possession of hundreds of indecent images and movies of children. He was sentenced to two and half years in jail at Portsmouth Crown Court on March 6.

Rouse also pleaded guilty to seven counts of indecent assault, which took place in 1980, when he appeared at Woolwich Crown Court on June 8.

He was sentenced to a total of six years in prison for the seven assault charges.
