Former EY Employee Who Liked Secretly Filming People in the Bathroom Given Four Years to Think About His Choices

A judge in London sentenced a former EY employee to four years in prison for filming more than 3,500 people "in bedrooms and bathrooms in his own home, shower rooms and lavatories at his work place and bathrooms in a large number of coffee shops in central London." 

George Thomas started his little hobby in 2009 and got away with it up until earlier this year:

It was only in March this year that a female colleague found a device in the shower room. When she looked more closely at it, she discovered a memory card and immediately took it to her manager.

Police were called and the device was found to contain footage from different locations, including the shower room.

The film also captured Mr Thomas’ face in the act of hiding the device.

Investigating officers realised some of the footage was from a disabled lavatory in a branch of Starbucks in the Shard building, in London.

When Mr Thomas was arrested on 28 April, police found two covert cameras in his laptop bag and a number of memory cards in his locker, as well as a portable hard-drive.

The good news for Thomas is that after he gets out of prison he can see plenty of people in various stages of undress just by searching EY in Google Images.
