Con­victed for se­cret film­ing

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

A New­lands man who se­cretly filmed a woman un­dress­ing, and up a co­worker’s skirt, told po­lice he was just be­ing silly.

Christo­pher Shane Goodale, 37, pleaded guilty at Porirua District Court last week to two charges of mak­ing an in­ti­mate vis­ual record­ing and one of pos­sess­ing an in­ti­mate vis­ual record­ing.

Po­lice pros­e­cu­tor Lisa Thom­son said the first vic­tim in the case was a friend of Goodale’s.

In 2008, af­ter a night in town, the friend stayed at his house. Thom­son said that in the morn­ing the woman was in­structed to dress in the mas­ter bed­room, where a cam­era was se­cretly set up.

She said the sec­ond vic­tim worked with Goodale in Porirua. Dur­ing 2011 and 2012, Goodale would place a we­b­cam on the floor next to his desk, call the vic­tim over and have her stand over the cam­era.

He has apol­o­gised for both sit­u­a­tions.

Judge Tony Walsh con­victed Goodale and re­manded him un­til Au­gust 8.
