Voyeur snooped on China’s Olympic swimming team

A voyeur who snooped on members of China’s Olympic swimming team was told on Monday he risks being sent to prison if he enters a female locker room again within the next five years.

Declan Crosbie, 25, was sentenced on Monday after he previously admitted a charge of trespass with intent to commit a sexual offence.

Prosecutors told Leeds Crown Court that Crosbie snuck into a locker room at a swimming training pool and was caught peeking over the top of cubicles as female Chinese Olympic athletes got changed.

When staff at the pool in Leeds, northern England, went to investigate, Crosbie hid in a cubicle and imitated a woman’s voice.

Judge Peter Collier ordered Crosbie, who has previous convictions for voyeurism, to attend a rehabilitation course for sex offenders.

Collier also imposed a five year order which legally compels Crosbie to stay away from female changing rooms or bathrooms.

Any breach of the order in that time period would likely see the snooper jailed automatically, without the need to charge and convict him of a new offence.
