Suspended sentence for Cumbria swimming pool voyeur
A man who filmed a girl as she got undressed at a Cumbria leisure centre has been given a suspended jail term.
Christopher Townson, 25, of Jenkin Rise, Kendal, used his phone to video the 15-year-old under a partition wall at a caravan park near Carnforth.
Townson had denied voyeurism, claiming he was looking for his daughter’s hair clips but was convicted following a trial at Carlisle Crown Court.
He was given an eight-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months.
The married father of two will also have to register as a sex offender for five years.
