DIRTY OLD MAN; Husband secretly filmed sex in bath with wife.
A HUSBAND installed secret cameras in his house so he could film himself having sex with his wife in the bath without her knowing.
The 55-year-old hid the surveillance equipment in the bathroom ceiling and tiles and connected them via a video recorder to a TV in the bedroom. His wife only found out when she turned on the telly and saw pictures of her partner having a bath.
She booted him out of the house and they now live apart.
The man, who can't be named for legal reasons, admitted three charges of voyeurism and could face jail.
Sarah Evans, prosecuting, told the magistrates: "He admitted putting the camera in the bathroom to watch his wife when she was taking a bath. He also filmed them having sex in the bath for his own sexual gratification."
The husband told police that he set up the cameras without telling his partner because he was turned on by seeing her in the bath.
He owned up after she confronted him. He recorded a confession on tape via a microphone installed in the ceiling at their home in a south Gloucestershire village.
Miss Evans continued: "He made an audio recorded confession on a tape, saying that he had installed the cameras secretly to film her in the bath.
"Various microphones and other audio equipment were also found by police in more rooms around the house."
Police were called in last August and they traced wires from the camera equipment to a video in the loft.
The pictures were then fed into the TV in the bedroom for the husband's entertainment, North Avon magistrates court in Yate, near Bristol was told.
The man faces a maximum sentence of two years in prison. He will be sentenced by magistrates at a later date to be fixed.
His wife yesterday refused to comment on the case at the family home. Her husband, who is now living in Southmead, Bristol, was unavailable.
