UK: The married man, who also sexually abused his 12-year-old daughter was found guilty of ‘appalling ‘ crimes against his own familyA father who fitted a spy camera above his 21-year-old son’s bed to watch him have sex with a girlfriend has been jailed for four years.
The 53-year-old married man could hear noise coming from the couple’s bedroom and was “curious” about their sexual exploits, a court heard. He installed the spy camera in the loft above their bed and then recorded the pair having sex – even linking the video feed to a television in the kitchen so that he could watch while cooking.
A judge was told how the father’s twisted campaign of voyeurism only came to an end when his younger daughter accidentally switched to a different channel on the TV and was confronted with live images of her brother’s bed. The teenager then told the son’s girlfriend and between them they climbed into the attic and discovered the camera.
They later discovered a naked screenshot of the 19-year-old girlfriend, taken from a video of her having sex with his 21-year-old son. The man, who cannot be named to protect the identity of his children, bowed his head in shame as a judge told him he would face jail for his “appalling” crimes against his own family.
It then emerged that he had sexually abused his 12-year-old daughter at their home in Faringdon, Oxon.
