Sarah Elliott QC successfully defends client charged with voyeurism

10.01.18 | |

The defendant, a professional in a senior position at a global media company, used a hidden camera to covertly film women in intimate situations, both in his home and theirs, as well creating an extensive catalogue of “upskirting” videos of women on public transport. The offences were committed over a four year period and were aggravated by the planning and sophistication of execution .  Sarah successfully persuaded the Judge to pass a suspended sentence with a requirement to attend a sexual offenders programme rather than the immediate custodial term the Judge original had in mind. She also successfully argued that the terms of the sexual harm prevention order (SHPO) should not prevent the defendant from having ordinary electronic devices, such as a mobile, with camera facilities.


The case has appeared in the media.


Sarah was instructed by Tim Walker, Sonn MacMillan Walker.
