A 32-year-old man from the Brackenbury Village area of Hammersmith has received a suspended sentence after it was found he secretly filmed women and children in changing rooms in public swimming baths.

Robert Morgan of Bradmore Park Road was identified as a suspect by British Transport Police during an investigation into an assault on a train in March 2017 in which a mobile phone was seized. This led to the discovery of a significant number of images that had been covertly taken including many of children.

Morgan, who describes himself as a part-time musician and webcast producer, was a member of an online group that shared images they had taken in this way between April 2013 and November 2017. They would hang around changing rooms in swimming pools in East London and Surrey to take photos surreptitiously. The group would do this by placing a small hidden camera in a bag and push it underneath the cubicle partition to film teenage girls undressing.

Along with 38-year-old Adam Dennis of Littlehampton, Morgan was charged with public voyeurism offences in November 2017 but was only sentenced on Wednesday 24 April due to the complexity of the investigation.

In mitigation, Morgan’s barrister said that he was a vulnerable person who had been neglected by his parents who had sent him away to boarding school.

Morgan admitted to one count of voyeurism, one count of conspiracy to make indecent photographs of a child, one count of conspiracy to distribute an indecent photograph of a child, three counts of possessing indecent photographs of a child, one count of possessing a prohibited image of a child, and one count of possession of a controlled drug. He received a 20-month sentence, suspended for 2 years, as well as 120 hours unpaid work and attendance to a rehab programme.

Dennis was sentenced to 22 months imprisonment, to serve half and spend the remainder on licence.

Both men are also subject to a 9-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order which forbids them sharing naked images of women or children, communicating with known paedophiles, or entering any female only or mixed sex changing room area of any swimming pool or leisure centre.

There were two other members of the group including Declan Golden who has fled to the US and Miguel Jose Sainz who cannot currently be located by the police.

The police have been able to trace a number of victims, some who were children at the time of the footage being captured, to inform them of the investigation. None of those who were spoken to were aware of being filmed or had given anyone permission to film them whilst they were getting changed. The investigation flagged at least 6000 potential victims, however a large number of the photos are unidentifiable.

Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Claire Jackson-Harwood, said, “This has been a long running investigation with officers working tirelessly to ensure the victims get the justice they deserve. Dennis and Morgan’s insidious actions will have a life-long impact on the victims who were preyed upon while they innocently enjoyed a hobby.

“They have given no thought to the victims and simply acted for their own gratification. Not satisfied with just recording the images, they have worked together to go on and create profile documents and researched their victims on social media. These actions make this offending even more shocking. I hope this outcome gives the victims the closure they deserve.”
