Pervert set up camera in loo
A PEEPING Tom rigged up his ipod in a hospital toilet so he could spy on unsuspecting patients and staff.
Michael Ryan left the device’s video camera running in a unisex cubicle.
Neewcastle Crown Court court heard that the 43-year-old would then get his twisted kicks watching the footage.
Former business Ryan director was arrested after being spotted acting suspiciously in his parked Jeep in Byker, Newcastle.
When they inspected his ipod, they found the covert footage from the Chichester, West Sussex, hospital where he had been working at the time, the court heard.
Ryan, of Newcastle, had claimed he had only recorded the footage to try and catch a thief who had stolen his wallet and may use the cubicle.
But he later admitted two charges of voyeurism.
Ryan was given a threeyear community order and sex offender treatment.
