An Auckland professional found guilty of exposing himself has asked a court to overturn his conviction.

He was found guilty last year of committing two charges of an indecent act in 2013.

And was sentenced to 120 hours of community service and ordered to pay $1000 in reparation.

According to the court, the man hid in a bush in the Mount Eden Domain before jumping out and exposing himself to a female jogger while "grinning".

Several months later he did the same thing, coincidentally flashing the same woman.

Today, his lawyer, Ron Mansfield QC, asked for the charges to be dropped without retrial.

He says a key piece of evidence was unreliable.

The alleged offender's job or identity cannot be revealed, and he maintains innocence.

The hearing continues.
