‘Sex-obsessed’ sailor, 33, who hid secret cameras in his bathroom to spy on two women after fantasizing about having a threesome with one of them and his wife is found guilty of voyeurism

Date:

A ‘sex-obsessed’ Royal Navy sailor hid secret cameras in his bathroom to spy on two women after fantasizing about having a threesome with one of them and his wife, a court martial heard.

Able Seaman Anthony Hooper, 33, invited the sisters to stay with him before setting up spy cameras at their home, which he watched live on his mobile phone.

AB Hooper was only caught when a victim saw one of the cameras and alerted her sister.

The two women then recorded a video message on her phone for the sailor’s wife to tell her what she had been up to.

While sentencing the engineering technician to an 18-month community service order, Judge General Counsel Darren Reed told AB Hooper that his actions were a “serious breach of trust and an invasion of privacy.”

The court heard that AB Hooper had contacted one of his victims on Facebook before inviting her to stay with him because he wanted her to be part of a “sexual relationship with him and his wife” at his home in Gosport, near Portsmouth, Hampshire. .

AB Hooper and his wife have since divorced and he has now left the Navy, the court was told.

In the indictment, Lieutenant Commander Jamie Brotherton told Bulford Military Court, Wilts: ‘AB Hooper offered to let her stay with him at his house.

“AB Hooper, on Facebook messenger, offered to lead her into a sexual relationship with him and his wife.”

When the woman visited her sister, both Polish nationals, AB Hooper repeatedly moved cameras around the house to try to film them, the court heard.

Lieutenant Commander Brotherton continued: ‘He set up a hidden camera in the bathroom and recorded it.

‘He put one of the hidden cameras in a vent above the shower, sink and toilet area.

“One of the women went to the bathroom and he filmed her exposing her genitals and buttocks.

Later, one of the women noticed the hidden camera and told her sister about it in Polish.

‘AB Hooper removed the camera before reinstalling it later, as well as one above the curtain pole in his bedroom.

‘He was able to see what the camera was recording on his phone.

‘After they left, [his victims] he recorded a video message to his wife, telling her that he had been secretly filming.

‘AB Hooper reported himself to the service police for voyeurism. They searched his house and found a small black camera.

In a victim impact statement read in court, one of AB Hooper’s victims said: ‘This incident has been terrible for my mental health.

‘I felt like a movie, things like this don’t happen in real life.

‘Wherever I go in public now I do a search [for hidden cameras].

“It was such a crazy situation.”

The court heard that the sailor, who was based at HMS Nelson, Portsmouth, had been medically discharged from the Navy due to injury and was now in “full-time engineering employment”.

The seaman was given an 18-month community service order at Bulford Military Court.

When sentencing AB Hooper, Judge Reed said that he had shown a “significant degree of planning.”

He continued: ‘You told the probation officer that you were obsessed with sex at the time.

‘Two friends came to stay with you.

You installed hidden cameras and recorded them going to the bathroom.

“This was a serious breach of trust and an invasion of privacy.”

After pleading guilty to one count of voyeurism and another of installing equipment for that purpose, AB Hooper, formerly of HMS Nelson, Portsmouth, was given an 18-month community service order and ordered to complete 100 hours of unpaid work.

An order was issued to destroy their cameras.
