A pervert was criticized by a judge for his “terrible hostility to women” when he was jailed for 37 weeks for exposing himself drunk to a lone female train passenger just hours after he was released from prison.
Oliver Trim, 32, boarded a train to Bristol from Paddington in June last year and was assisted by a woman when his bag got stuck as he walked down the aisle.
He then sat down next to the woman and tried to have a conversation with her before revealing that he had been released from prison that day.
Oliver Trim, 32, cried when he was sentenced to 37 in prison after exposing himself to a lone woman on a train, pinching the buttocks of a female police officer and using racist language
Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard that Trim repeatedly asked the victim to have sex with him in the train toilets and if she was ‘naughty’.
After turning down his offer and ignoring his advances, he kept asking before unbuttoning his pants and exposing himself.
The terrified woman thought he would climb on top of her and rape her.
She managed to quickly send a message to friends, which prompted the police to get on the train at the next station and arrest him.
He snorted loudly in the dock and was in tears when a judge reprimanded him for making no attempt to change his “terrible hostility to women.”
District Judge Angus Hamilton told Westminster Magistrates Court today: ‘His criminal record shows horrendous hostility towards women, which can get worse if he’s drunk’
In a victim statement, the woman said: “The incident left me disgusted and in some ways angry, upset and scared about what was happening.
‘I didn’t know what to do. If I hadn’t defended myself, I think he would have moved on.
“I thought he was going to rape me. It makes me angry to even think about it.
“I’m really looking forward to getting another service to Bristol on board. I don’t know if I’ll ever feel comfortable boarding the train alone.’
Trim later assaulted a female policewoman by squeezing her behind.
The officer said in a statement: “I firmly believe to be treated fairly and to be treated as you would like to be treated.

The woman who fell victim to Trim on the train said the incident “made a deep impression on me,” believing he would climb on top of her and rape her after unzipping his pants to reveal his penis
‘This made a deep impression on me. I felt upset as I wrote this and was very in tears.
“Now I feel like my personal body has been violated. Although there was no physical injury, I now have the feeling that this will stay with me for a long time to come.”
Trim was also convicted of calling someone an***** in Paddington before the train exposure incident.
The court heard that he was recalled to prison after the incidents and released in April this year.
According to a report from the probation service, he has missed appointments with them since he was released.
District Judge Angus Hamilton said: “Mr. Trim seems so unmotivated to do anything about his behaviour.
“These offenses took place the day he was released from prison, he seems to lack the self-discipline to keep himself out of trouble for 24 hours.
“His criminal record shows a horrific animosity towards women, which can get worse when he’s drunk.
“He doesn’t seem motivated to do anything about his alcohol abuse.”
Putting him in jail for 37 weeks, he said, “I strongly believe in constructive sentencing – sentencing designed to address an underlying problem.
“But there are cases where that just isn’t an appropriate form of sentencing and I’m afraid you fall firmly into that category in my view.”
Trim took the opportunity to speak to the victim after helping him when his bag was caught walking down the aisle, before revealing that he had just been released from prison and constantly asked her to have sex with him in the train toilets
While Trim tried to talk about him, the judge continued: ‘Despite the offenses that took place in June last year and you have been at large since April this year, you appear to have done very little to address underlying issues and according to the probation service enter into discussions with them and do not comply with agreements.
“The exposure was a lengthy incident where you repeatedly exposed yourself to a woman who appears to have been targeted for being alone in a train car.
“Third is the issue of your track record which is appalling and shows repeated disregard for women’s safety and repeated aggressive attacks on women.”
Trim, from Cardiff, confessed to exposure, assault and criminal harm and was convicted after trial for using racially abusive language.
He was also ordered to pay a fine of £120 for damaging a police cell.
