Man admits spying on woman in sports centre

A 22-year-old man has admitted a charge of voyeurism at Limavady Magistrates Court.

Paul Brendan Nicholson of Woodland Walk in the town admitted a charge of obtaining sexual gratification from observing another person in the local leisure centre on April 15 last year.

He also admitted a charge of threatening to kill a man on April 15 in connection with the same incident and assaulting two other men.

These incidents happened after Nicholson was approached in relation to the voyeurism.

It is believed that the defendant was caught on CCTV attempting to watch a female getting dressed.

The District Judge, Eamonn King, said that due to the guilty plea to the voyeurism charge the Sexual Offenders Act applied and Nicholson was ordered to sign the Sex Offenders Register.

A defence barrister asked for a pre-sentence report and this request was granted.

His case was adjourned until September 23 for the pre-sentence report to be compiled. He will be sentenced then.
