MODEL JAILED FOR SPYING ON NAKED WOMAN IN TAN SALON
AN aspiring male model who hid a spy camera inside a tanning booth to film a naked woman broke down in tears as he was jailed for four weeks.
James Bettles ( right), 26, booked himself in at the Glow salon in Enfield Chase, north London, and placed his high definition device inside a towel.
The singer-songwriter then tore a hole in the material so he could get a good view of the woman undressing for her appointment.
But when Bettles returned to collect his camera, he found it had been moved – and, after speaking to the manager, he was told police had been called.
He admitted two counts of voyeurism and one of attempting to observe a person doing a private act on October 28 this year at Highbury Magistrates’ Court.
Police also searched his car where they found a tablet stashed in the spare wheel.
On the device they found Bettles had Photoshopped a picture of the victim’s face with his genitals right next to her mouth.
Bettles will be required to sign on to the sex offenders register for five years after his release from prison.
A Sexual Offences Prevention Order was also imposed, prohibiting Bettles from possessing any internet-enabled device without the capacity to retain internet history.
Bettles was also banned from deleting the internet history of any device in his possession and from possessing any device capable of recording images in a public place, other than a mobile phone.
He is also banned from beauty or tanning salons, with the exception of a barbers catering solely to male clients, for five years. He must also pay a £115 victim surcharge.
Bettles wept and held his head in his hands as the sentence was given, and hugged his father and brother in the well of the court before he was led away to the cells.
