Teenager avoids jail for spy­cam videos taken in chang­ing rooms

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A TEENAGE waiter who se­cretly filmed women in leisure centre chang­ing rooms has avoided prison.

Ajay Dhal­li­wal, 18, reg­u­larly vis­ited Cirences­ter Leisure Centre, Glocs, and held his mo­bile phone un­der­neath cu­bi­cles to film peo­ple.

When cops searched the be­d­room of his house in Stroud on Novem­ber 8 last year, they found a sil­ver tablet and an iPhone with videos of peo­ple be­ing filmed covertly.

This in­cluded the chang­ing rooms in Fifth Di­men­sion Gym, Stroud, and the River Is­land in Cribbs Cause­way shop­ping centre, Bris­tol, where the waiter also filmed him­self com­mit­ting a lewd act.

He was ar­rested when a woman saw him hold­ing a white mo­bile phone un­der the wall of her cu­bi­cle in Cirences­ter.

Dhal­li­wal pleaded guilty to four charges of com­mit­ting voyeurism be­tween Au­gust 2014 and Novem­ber 2016.

At Chel­tenham Mag­is­trates’ Court he was handed a 10-month prison sen­tence sus­pended for two years and was given a Sex­ual Harm Pre­ven­tion Or­der for five years.

He will also be on the Sex Of­fend­ers’ Reg­is­ter for 10 years. IN 2007, Scot­land spent £125,000 de­vis­ing a new na­tional slo­gan. The win­ning en­try was: “Wel­come to Scot­land.”
