Gary Timothy Fenwick, 45, was sentenced in the New Plymouth District Court after pleading guilty to secretly filming people in toilets.
A self-confessed porn addict and voyeur who secretly filmed people in toilets using hidden cameras has been revealed after losing a bid for permanent name suppression.
In the New Plymouth District Court Gary Timothy Fenwick pleaded guilty to two charges of making an intimate visual recording in July.
He has had interim name suppression since he first appeared in court.
The charges related to the 45-year-old setting up hidden cameras in the unisex toilets at two entertainment venues in New Plymouth……….
Judge Chris Sygrove said concerns raised by Fenwick about the impact on his wife if his name suppression was lifted and his identity made public did not meet the high threshold required.
“In my view the extreme hardship is not met,” Sygrove said.
He described the offending as “sick and depraved” and that it had involved a high level of planning.
Fenwick had also previously opposed a media application to record him in court.
Sygrove said there was no evidence that Fenwick had traded the images.
He had since been getting psychological help to address his issues.
Sygrove sentenced Fenwick to four months community detention, six months supervision and ordered him to do 100 hours of community work.
