A man of the United Kingdom, was caught recording his son and his girlfriend having sex.
The 53-year-old man of Faringdon, Oxfordshire, who placed a hidden camera over the bed of his 21-year-old son to watch him having sex with his girlfriend, has been jailed.
The married man could hear love making noises coming from his son’s room and became curious, a court heard.
He installed the spy camera in the attic above his son’s bed and then recorded his every move. He then streamed the video to a TV in the home.
The father’s crime came to light when his younger daughter flipped through her father’s TV and found live streaming video of her brother’s bed.
The teenager told her brother’s girlfriend, and together they climbed into the attic and found the camera.
They also found screenshots of the 19-year-old girlfriend without clothes, and a video of her having sex with her 21-year-old boyfriend.
The woman then told her mother what she found, and the mother called the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC).
The father was arrested, charged and convicted of eight counts of sexual activity with a child and two counts of voyeurism.
Judge Ian Pringle QC said that it was “an appalling breach of trust,” and sentenced the father to 4 years in prison.
