Hidden Camera in Box Upskirt Snapper Arrested

A Kettering upskirt snapper used a home-made hidden camera to take secret pictures up womens skirts.

Ashwin Francis, 45, of Kettering, rigged up the camera to snap his unsuspecting victims in local shoe shops and the town’s new Market Place.

The married father-of-two was only caught after one of the women he was attempting to take upskirt pictures spotted him acting suspiciously in Market Place and gave chase.

Judge Richard Bray, sentencing at Northampton Crown Court yesterday, said: “This is a pathetic case of sexual gratification but it falls right at the bottom of the scale of things because there were no children involved.

“Going about taking illicit pictures of people acting perfectly normally in public is not acceptable.”

Francis concealed a Lumix digital camera inside a green light bulb box and secretly went about collecting images of unsuspecting women in summer clothing.

He lurked in shoe shops, taking upskirt images of women as they bent over to try on footwear, and stood behind women in skirts and dresses on escalators, photographing up their legs.

His defence was that he was creating a blog for prospective immigrants, preparing them for the “boldness” of women in this country.

But Mr Bray dismissed his protestations, branding his excuse “too ridiculous for words”.

Francis was caught on June 29, 2010, after trying the stunt at Kettering’s new Market Place water feature.

He was spotted by a woman who saw the lens pointing at her through the light bulb box and, when Francis tried to escape with the camera hidden in his armpit, she gave chase.

Francis ran into the car park of the police station in London Road and was eventually caught and arrested by a plain-clothed officer.

Police found about 15 pictures of women on his camera but, despite his perverted hobby, he has been spared a jail sentence.

He must attend a sex offenders’ rehabilitation programme and will be closely monitored for the next three years.

He will be regularly visited by a probation officer for the next six months.

Francis had pleaded guilty to committing an act of outraging public decency for sexual gratification, saying: “Looking at anything that beautiful gives me pleasure.”

Mr Bray concluded: “If you are involved in any other incidents you will not get another chance.”
