Voyeur filmed woman colleague in showers at council offices

A man who became infatuated with a work colleague filmed her naked in the shower at the council headquarters where they worked.

Computer specialist Kelvin Wynn, 39, would turn-up for work early and secretly film the woman in the ladies’ showers at County Hall in Mold, the headquarters of Flintshire County Council.

She was shocked and distressed when she saw a mobile phone held under the shower cubicle door.

A court heard that one of the first people she rang to say that someone had been filming her was Wynn himself because she trusted him as a work colleague.

But it turned out that Wynn was responsible.

Wynn, Flintshire magistrates court was told, had been filming her for more than two years, and he had 18 films of her in the shower and in the office, for his own sexual gratification.

Prosecutor Rhian Jackson said that the victim had no idea the defendant was filming her and was horrified when it emerged he had a collection of films.

Wynn admitted voyeurism between May 2012 and July 2014.

The defendant, who has since lost his job in the council IT department and has moved from his home in Mold, escaped custody.

He was placed on a three year community order with rehabilitation so that he can follow an intensive community sex offender group work programme.

Wynn was ordered to register as a sex offender for five years and he was made the subject of an indefinite restraining order not to approach the victim or the road where she lives.

In a victim impact statement the woman said it had made her frightened and nervous, she had suffered a panic attack, and felt she had been betrayed by a work colleague she thought she could trust.

Stephen Edwards, defending, said he had not turned up in court previously because he was so ashamed and attempted suicide. Mr Edwards added: “He is genuinely sorry and mortified by what he has done.”
