Persistent Upskirt Snapper Loses His Appeal

admin - Tuesday, 2 March 2010 12:59

A persistent upskirter caught taking sneaky candid snaps of women’s chests and bottoms has lost an appeal against his prison sentence.
Andrew Mackie was caught with hundreds of candid pictures of women on his phone.

The voyeur – who was banned from owning a camera – has a disturbing history of taking secrets upskirt shots of unsuspecting shoppers.

Mackie, of Dunstanburgh Close, Oxclose, Washington, was jailed for two years at Liverpool Crown Court on November 6, after pleading guilty to breaching his Sex Offender’s Prevention Order (SOPO) for a fourth time.

He was caught with more than 1,000 pictures of fully-clothed women whilst on a train from Preston to Wigan on September 30 last year.

Yesterday he asked judges at London’s Criminal Appeal court to reduce that sentence.

But Mr Justice Ouseley and Sir Geoffrey Grigson ruled the jail term was fair.

The court heard Mackie, who has 25 previous convictions for sex offences, was placed under a SOPO because of the “troublesome, obsessive and repetitive nature of his offending.”

Mr Justice Ousely said Mackie had shown a “disregard for the sentences of the courts”.

In July 2008, Mackie was caught taking secret upskirt shots and film of women at The Galleries shopping centre bus station, in Washington, just weeks after he was released from jail for a similar offence.

The 37-year-old was jailed for five months earlier that year for secretly snapping women shoppers at the Metrocentre.

He was also banned from having a camera anywhere in England and Wales after repeatedly stalking women out shopping and taking candid shots of them from behind.

Mackie admitted his third breach of a Sex Offender’s Prevention Order (SOPO) at Newcastle Crown Court in 2008.

Judge Guy Whitburn sentenced Mackie to 36 weeks’ imprisonment, suspended for two years with supervision and programme requirements.

The SOPO was imposed at Teesside Crown Court in 2006, after Mackie was given an Asbo banning him from owning or using a camera in England and Wales, after targeting women shoppers in York during the sweltering summer of 2004
