A WHEELCHAIR-bound 71-year-old man who indecently exposed himself to children outside his house has been warned of jail time if he offends again.
Robert William Dundas pleaded guilty in Gympie Magistrates Court to committing an indecent act out the front of his Rifle Range Rd home on July 3 last year.
Dundas called out to children as they walked past his home.
"You're beautiful..." Dundas said before asking the children into his home and revealing his penis.
The court heard the children ran home to tell their parents.
It wasn't the first time Dundas had exposed himself to children, however, the alleged offence was not reported last time.
Instead, a child's father spoke to Dundas's carer about it.
The court also heard Dundas had previous convictions for similar offences and that he was already under psychiatric care.
While Dundas pleaded guilty to the July 3 charge, the court was told he posed minimal risk to the community because he was disabled and it was difficult for him to leave the house alone.
The court was also told fencing around the home had been changed, to limit what children could see.
"I definitely won't (do it again)," Dundas told Magistrate Maxine Baldwin, who described his case as "unique".
As a deterrent from further offending, Dundas was placed on a two-year good behaviour bond with a recognisance of $2000.
But he was warned if he offended again, given his history, it was likely he could go to jail.
