A Geraldton man who performed an obscene act as he went through a McDonald’s drive-through last month has been fined $600. Jesse Jacob Maslen pleaded guilty to one charge of obscene acts in public in Geraldton Magistrates Court on Thursday. Police prosecutor Sgt Beau Jones said the offence occurred when Maslen attended McDonald’s in Webberton on October 28. As he went through the drive-through, Maslen approached the cashier window with his pants pulled down and began performing the lewd act. The cashier closed the window and advised the manager of what they had seen. Maslen was served by another worker, paid for his meal, and drove through to collect it as he continued the obscene act. The indecent incident was captured on CCTV and Maslen was arrested on October 30 and taken to Geraldton Police Station. Defence lawyer Karen Ward said Maslen was remorseful and embarrassed after the incident. The court was told the man “didn’t think they would be able to see from the angle” and he was in the “wrong place at the wrong time”. Ms Ward said the offence was out of character for him and there was no deviant motivation. Magistrate Angus Hockton agreed. He fined Maslen $600 and ordered him to pay prosecution costs of $137.
