A man caught exposing himself to a jogger in Wellington's Botanic Gardens has been given 18 months intensive supervision to get treatment.

Scott Stanley Dawson, 37, of Newtown pleaded guilty to intentionally and obscenely exposing himself after he was seen sitting on a park bench with his genitals on view in June.

Wellington District Court judge Susan Thomas said Dawson had previously had a sentence of 6 months' jail for 10 charges of possessing images of child pornography and had made some progress with counselling.

"There is still some work to be done,'' she told Dawson today.  She ordered that he undertake treatment at the Wellstop programme to help sexual offenders.

In 2010 Dawson was charged after he mislaid his plug-in USB drive in the staff changing room at the stadium where he worked in Christchurch and pornography was found on it.
