A perverted driving instructor who used a camera hidden under the dashboard of the car to photograph the skirt of a young female student has walked freely from court.
The 53-year-old Rory Robertson drove a man's car School and secretly photographed dozens of car drivers with his Citroen axe.
At the same time, he also used cameras hidden in the vents to monitor swimmers at the local leisure center in Darlington, Durham.
When he was caught by the police, he was found to have 12-year-
The old girl in the shower, the old woman in clothes, the young couple who have sex in the cubicle, and many movies on his driving school student skirt.
Despite the recognition of eight peeping allegations, one of which was to take indecent photos of a child and distort the process of justice by destroying most of his image banks, Robertson was exempt from imprisonment, instead, the three-year group education program for sex offenders was accepted ".
Only two victims have been confirmed, and the court heard many people wondering if they were now-
Robertson of divorce
After the peeps took pictures of the woman's skirt at the boot shop, the police appealed. I took the picture but did not call the police.
Oh, I was wrong, prosecutor Harry Hadfield told Teesside criminal court that he was caught by a vigilant 21 --year-
An old male swimmer at Darlington dolphin center looked up and saw the camera hidden in the vent.
When the staff retrieved the equipment from the center, they found that there were images on the equipment, but there were also pictures taken clearly on the driving school car.
A young woman pictured in the film is wearing a uniform from a local comprehensive school, and her school badge is visible in the film.
When the police arrived at the school, they found the 18-year-old girl who told them who the instructor was.
Mr. Hadfield said: "The defendant placed a velcro under the dashboard on the driver's side to record images of his female students who depicted their inner thigh and genital areas.
"Every time a student takes a driving class, the camera is repositioned.
There was a photo showing the defendant holding a device in his hand in an attempt to capture more photos of his students when they left his vehicle.
"Some captured footage shows that he took a device, turned it on, and showed that the woman would get on the bus once he positioned it.
"In a statement filed with the court, one of his victims, the sixth student identified in the video, said:" as his student, I will expect him to be trustworthy, treat me with dignity and respect.
"Now, knowing what he did, he obviously didn't think about me, and the only idea was about his own sexual feelings.
She continued: "I felt sick and disappointed when I found out what he did and I stopped going to class right away.
"Driving coach Rory Robertson left Teesside Crown Court and after he installed a camera under the dashboard of the car to take pictures of the female students, he was granted a community order for three years: north News and Pictures Ltd. "This experience made me feel like I would keep looking around if I was recorded.
I have been able to continue my life, but I feel sick every time I think about what he has done.
Hadfield said Robertson had been recording during January 1 to March 21, 2014, the day his camera was found in the dolphin center.
Because he burned USB sticks and memory drives in a bucket in the Darlington home garden and destroyed the evidence, it was not known how many victims were there.
Hadfield said: "He has deployed some strategies in recording.
He puts the camera on the vent, which means he records people without distinction;
Men, women and children.
"The second approach is to keep the victim under the partition by following him into the adjacent locker compartment, placing the camera under or on the partition, or hiding it in his shoes, and he hides it under the wall.
"On one occasion, he obtained images of sexual behavior between men and women.
It is clear from the way the video was taken that the defendant must have been lying on the floor to observe the activity ", and among those observed, one elderly woman was naked and was undergoing a change, A Naked Girl and a young girl around the age of 12, urinating in a private shower in a swimming suit.
Dan Cordey of mitigatling said that Robertson was not looking for the child on purpose and that the judge accepted his intention to take pictures of young women he considered attractive.
Mr. Cordey said: "He was a little frustrated at the time and accepted his guilt from the beginning.
He knew that everything he had done was unacceptable and did not want me to make any excuses, and he was fully aware of the impact this had on the victims.
He said Robertson's wife divorced him after his arrest, his two adult children were "disgusted" with him, and he lost his career.
Richard Wright, a recorder from QC, told Robertson: "Your students didn't expect that you 'd be infringing their privacy by secretly recording their skirts.
"I know that many of the public are affected by your activities, although only two people are found, which in some way adds to the situation.
"People who will read and hear about this case, there is no doubt that those who have used the dolphin center or have taken a driving class with you will stop, wondering if their privacy has been violated by their photos
The judge said: "My biggest concern is to protect the public, and I have to think about how best to do that.
"Instead of sending Robertson to prison, he chose to place him under the supervision of the Northumbria sexual assault group education program for three years.
He said that he could not be sentenced to probation because the statutory maximum period of the order was two years and three years.
However, he warned Robertson: "I will send you to prison for about two years if you do not comply with this order.
He also ordered him to pay 500.
