Accused toilet snapper in court
A SOBERLEY dressed Llan Anthony was issued with a bail variation after appearing at Lismore Local Court yesterday morning.
The Numulgi resident, who was clean shaven and wearing a dark jacket and trousers, has been charged with with two counts of filming a person in a private act without consent to obtain sexual arousal, and one count of committing an indecent act.
He also faces alternate charges of two counts of offensive behaviour, and filming 61 people without their consent.
Mr Anthony, 44, pleaded not guilty through his solicitor, Edwina Lloyd.
Magistrate David Heilpern then adjourned the matter until June 18.
Ms Lloyd also asked he be excused from appearing at the hearing.
Mr Heilpern agreed, as long as Mr Anthony had formal legal representation.
The magistrate then made a variation to Mr Anthony’s bail conditions, which restricted his calls to using a landline.
“I add the clause allowing you to use a mobile phone only to call, text or email your legal representative, doctor, psychologist and therapist,” he said.
Police said Mr Anthony came to their attention after he was allegedly observed looking at a plainclothes police officer over a cubicle wall of the South Lismore public toilets on Union St on March 8.
He was arrested on March 23 at his property which he shares with his partner, was refused bail and spent the following weekend in the Grafton Correctional Facility.
Mr Anthony was originally granted bail under the condition he not visit or loiter near public toilets, not use any electronic devices except landline phones, not visit the Lismore Bunnings store and not leave his Numulgi home unless accompanied by his de facto partner.
