DAD CAUGHT VIDEOING HIS SON HAVING SEX

A 53-year-old married man in the United Kingdom has been jailed for four years after he was caught recording his son and his girlfriend having sex.
According to a report published by Mirror.co.uk, the convict who is of Faringdon, Oxfordshire, reportedly placed a hidden camera over the bed of his 21-year-old son to watch him having sex with his girlfriend.
The married man could hear love making noises coming from his son’s room and became curious, a court heard.
It was disclosed that the convict whose identity was not revealed 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.
However, his crime came to light when his younger daughter flipped through her father’s TV and found live streaming video of her brother’s bed.
A CCTV camera.
It was gathered that the teenager told her brother’s girlfriend, and together they climbed into the attic and found the camera.
Investigation revealed that screenshots of the 19-year-old girlfriend without clothes, and a video of her having sex with her 21-year-old boyfriend was found.
The father was arrested, charged and convicted of eight counts of sexual activity with a child and two counts of voyeurism.
It was gathered that the middle-aged father had also conducted a campaign of sexual abuse against his 12-year-old daughter, touching her over and under her clothes.
Defending the father, Jenny McVeigh said it was still unclear what had motivated him to commit such abuse.
“What he is unable to put into words at this stage is the motivation behind his behaviour.
“He didn’t feel an immediate feeling of sexual gratification from it.
“His concern was, remains and continues to be how his daughter is coping.”
Delivering judgement on the matter last Friday, Judge Ian Pringle QC said that it was “an appalling breach of trust,” and sentenced the father to 4 years in prison.
“A greater breach of trust is difficult to imagine. You wanted to spy on their sexual activity, curious as to what was going on and you even printed out a picture of your son’s girlfriend naked.
“You say you don’t know why you committed these offences and that it gave you no real sexual gratification,” the judge, sitting at Oxford Crown Court, stated.
