Caravan creep who sneaked in to observe sleeping woman’s naked body admits voyeurism.
Neil Terry has admitted lifting the woman’s duvet to look at her body as she slept in a caravan in Whitley Bay last summer
Voyeur Neil Terry has admitted sneaking into a caravan and lifting a woman’s duvet to observe her naked body.
The 46-year-old crept into the mobile home in Whitley Bay to target an unsuspecting victim for sex kicks.
A court heard Terry made no recording of what he saw but now he has pleaded guilty to voyeurism.
The charge stated that for “sexual gratification you observed a woman doing a private act, something she did not consent to being observed”.
His case was adjourned for pre-sentence reports to be compiled and he was further released on conditional bail.
Judge Paul Sloan QC, at Newcastle Crown Court, told him: “I’m going to adjourn sentence in your case until April 19, that’s the next date you must attend this court building.
“I’m directing the preparation of a pre-sentence report. You must understand the fact I’m adjourning sentence and directing the preparation of a pre-sentence report is not an indication of the sentence that will be imposed – that will be a matter for the judge who hears your case in due course.”
The offence happened on July 31 last year.
A previous hearing heard Terry was said to have used his mobile phone either as a light to see the victim or to record her.
But prosecutor Emma Dowling said: “Nothing was found on the phone.
“It’s not clear he actually managed to record.”
No further details will be revealed until Terry, of Buckingham Street, Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, is sentenced next month.
