A Wodonga man has been given a jail term for stalking his ex-girlfriend and rubbing his penis on her car window.
But Tyson John Crichton-Crawford will get to serve the sentence in the community.
That comes after Albury Local Court magistrate Imad Abdul-Karim placed Crichton-Crawford on an eight-month intensive corrections order.
He had previously pleaded guilty to two charges of stalking or intimidation and one of offensive behaviour over the incident, which took place back on February 22, 2018.
But sentencing had been delayed since May after Crichton-Crawford, 29, entered residential rehabilitation at Odyssey House for addiction issues.

"You're a copper rat," he yelled out. "You're a copper informant. Dogs get what they deserve."
Soon after, he rubbed his penis and then his exposed buttons on the passenger side window.
