A man convicted of sexual assault has been ordered to do unpaid work.
Kristopher Clark, 29, of Mount Gould Avenue, had denied indecently touching the woman, but was convicted after a trial.
Garth Richardson, prosecuting, told Plymouth Crown Court the victim felt “violated and very upset”.
Malcolm Clark, for the defendant, said there was no “remorse” as he did not accept the offence.
He said Clark’s girlfriend was pregnant.
Judge Paul Darlow said the offence was “furtive” and “opportunistic” and sentenced Clark to a 12-month community order with 280 hours unpaid work and to pay £1,250 costs.
