TWENTY-SEVEN months for 27 offences — that was the prison sentence handed to Perth pervert Stuart Arthur Clarke yesterday morning.
It’s a sentence that has upset one of his repeat victims.
Clarke, 52, was caught in January following two years of reports to police of a man appearing at homes at night and committing an obscene act in full view of female occupants in Maylands and West Perth.
For each of seven indecent act charges and one obscene act charge, Clarke was sentenced to four months imprisonment.
There were an additional eight obscene acts and one indecent act which each received a punishment of five months prison.
Clarke was also sentenced to 14 months prison for two trespassing charges, 18 months for two stalking charges, and 12 months for a 1997 burglary.
However, all of those sentences are to be served alongside a head sentence of 24 months for two burglaries and three months for an assault on a man who confronted Clarke during a flashing incident.
With parole, Clarke could be out in 15 months.

If a goverment needs to have tax, It is better to tax things that you want to discourage.
To be fair, Australia's current government would like to discourage poor people.
The girl told police that Cesmat had taken away her cell phone away when she went to bed, telling her he did not want her texting all night.
So the girl had no phone, just her iPod, which I assume was an iPod touch. She wasn't able to make a call from it, or an SMS, but she could send a Facebook message (or an email, or with the right software an IM to pretty much any service).
This is a story about how important communication can now be made by devices other than a phone. Or how children now not only have a mobile phone, but often a second gadget capable of keeping them connected.
And it's not like she didn't use Facebook and an iPod.
