Paedophile to be sentenced for voyeurism and indecent image charges

A paedophile voyeur will be sentenced next month for a catalogue of sexual offences.

Appearing before Swindon Magistrates’ Court John Berry, 36, now of Paignton, Devon, pleaded guilty to four counts of voyeurism and three charges of making indecent images of a child.

He is said to have installed recording equipment between early 2017 and early 2018 with the intention of recording another person doing a private act.

Three of the voyeurism charges relate to offences committed between 2006 and 2014 in Swindon.

The indecent images are said to have been made between 2010 and 2015.

Chairman of the bench Simon Wolfensohn granted Berry bail to appear at Swindon Crown Court on January 22 for sentence.

The conditions of his bail prevent him entering Swindon unless for court proceedings or prearranged appointments with his solicitors or police, being in contact with children under 16 or contacting prosecution witnesses.
