A pervert has been placed on the sex offender’s register for seven years after admitting spying on female colleagues while they went to the toilet – using an IPOD.
Publishing manager Robert Kelly also received a six month suspended sentence and a year-long supervision order, after pleading guilty to six voyeurism offences.
Perverted Kelly was caught out in October 2012 when a plumber discovered an iPod nano with a video camera hidden under the cistern in the women’s toilet at his place of work in Southwark, south London.
A police investigation discovered Kelly owned the iPod, and an examination of his computer revealed he had a dedicated folder filled with video footage of a female member of staff using the toilet.
When he was arrested, he claimed he installed the device to catch someone who pooed on the toilet floor, but cops did not believe his lies and in June last year he was charged with six counts of voyeurism.
Eventually, after initially pleading not guilty, moustachioed Kelly admitted the weird offences and was sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court last Friday.
Investigating officer DC Sarah Naisbitt said: “This was a complex investigation that involved detailed examination and evaluation of computer files, where crucial evidence was secured.
“I would like to thank all witnesses in this investigation, Kelly violated these women in their place of work where they felt they were secure and had no idea that images of such a discreet nature would be taken of them in this way.
“I hope that they can take some consolation that he admitted the offence and as a result will have to sign on to the sex offenders register for a number of years.
“This type of intrusion is not acceptable and the Metropolitan Police will support all victims and pursue all suspects.”
