Wayne Couzens pleads guilty to three counts of indecent exposure | Wayne Couzens

Wayne Couzens, the former Metropolitan Police officer who murdered Sarah Everard, has pleaded three counts of indecent exposure.

The 50-year-old pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to three counts between November 2020 and February 2021.

Couzens is serving a life sentence for the kidnapping, rape and murder of Everard, a 33-year-old marketing executive, on March 3, 2021, while a serving officer.

Dressed in a gray prison sweatshirt, Couzens grabbed the pleas via video link from Frankland high-security prison in County Durham.

He admitted to exposing himself at a McDonald’s in Swanley, Kent, twice on February 14 and 27, 2021, just days before abducting Everard.

He also pleaded guilty to flashing a cyclist in a forest in Deal, Kent on November 13, 2020.

He pleaded not guilty to another count of indecent assault in which he was accused of driving with his lower half exposed on June 9, 2015 in Dover, Kent.

He had previously pleaded not guilty to two other charges of indecent assault at the same McDonald’s in Kent between January 22 and February 1, 2021, and January 30 and February 6, 2021.

The remaining three counts will not be pursued by the prosecution and will be kept on file, the Old Bailey heard.

The case was adjourned to March 6 for sentencing.
