A bloke caught on CCTV performing a vile sex act with a stuffed Elmo doll now faces jail.

Kevin VanLuven, 60, was found guilty of aggravated indecent exposure following a one-day trial in Oakland County Circuit Court, Michigan.

He was spotted using a Tickle Me Elmo doll while he was inspecting a property on behalf of a potential purchaser.

The court heard that VanLuven was inspecting a three-bedroomed house in Oxford Township, and the homeowner, Jaida Dodson, had let VanLuven into the property along with another inspector, an estate agent, and the potential buyers.

After letting the group in, Ms Dodson, 22, took her two small boys out and left the buyers' team to it.

A couple of hours later, at around the time the inspection was due to end, Ms Dodson used her home security cameras to see whether it was finished.

At a court hearing last year, Dodson testified that she saw VanLuven remove a Tickle Me Elmo doll that had been among stuffed animals stored in a small teepee tent in the bedroom of Dodson’s two-year-old son.

VanLuven then “unzipped his pants and began masturbating in our son’s closet with his Tickle Me Elmo”, she told the court.

After Dodson called police, an officer confronted VanLuven at the residence. According to a police report VanLuven “admitted to placing his penis in Elmo’s mouth,” and “apologised and said he was ashamed.”

The responding officer, Deputy Patrick Yens, told a Circuit Court judge that when Ms Dodson placed the emergency call she told the 911 operator that she "believed that a home inspector was pleasing himself with a doll".

“Just when I think I have seen it all, someone steps up and surprises me with a new level of disturbing actions,” Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard commented.

Police seized evidence from the home and Yens testified: "We collected Elmo and took Elmo in."

Judge Phyllis McMillen scheduled VanLuven’s sentencing for December 2. The indecent exposure count carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison and a $2,000 fine.

VanLuven was acquitted of malicious destruction of property at the same hearing.
