IT Expert Peeping Tom Voyeur

A ‘lonely’ IT expert drilled a hole in a wall so he could install a hidden camera to spy on a woman as she got undressed.

Peter Cooksey outside Minshul Street Crown Court.

Peter Cooksey, described in a report as a ‘loner that watched porn’, struck up conversations with the woman before making lewd comments.

She spoke to him as she ‘felt sorry for him as he appeared lonely’, but was said to have done ‘nothing to encourage’ his advances and was ‘only trying to be friends with him’.

Cooksey, 34, was rumbled when he sent the woman an ‘inappropriate’ message that ‘led her to believe something was wrong’.

She later found the camera in the wall of her Trafford home and called the police.

Officers subsequently seized Cooksey’s mobile phone and computer and found clandestine footage of the woman.

Other videos showed he had filmed another woman.

Cooksey, of Fiddlers Lane, Irlam, Salford, admitted filming both women for sexual gratification. He has now been handed a ten-month jail sentence, suspended for two years, having pleaded guilty to three counts of voyeurism.

Cooksey, a team leader at an electronics company, was also handed a four-month sentence, suspended for two years, for possession of extreme pornography.

In a statement read at Minshull Street Crown Court , the woman who found Cooksey’s camera said: “I was disgusted, hurt and frightened. I have no idea how long he was watching me for.

“I feel hate. I am incredibly anxious and I feel violated. His parents have asked me to forgive him, but I cannot.

“I am worried that it may have continued if I didn’t look for the camera.

“I have since moved out of the house, but I still feel uncomfortable. This has had a huge impact on my mental health. I was only trying to be friends with him.”

In a statement, Cooksey’s second victim said: “I feel violated at being recorded in my own home. This has been a worrying time.”

Prosecuting, Andrew Evens told the court: “The victim knew the defendant for a short period of time and she felt sorry for him as he appeared to be lonely.

“But he repeatedly asked to speak to her or contact her. She felt that he might fancy her, although she did nothing to encourage him.

“During an unrelated incident, the complainant asked if she was alright.

“The conversation continued and he asked her if she was single and he then [made a lewd comment]. He then asked her if she needed a hug.

“She laughed off the comment and the conversation came to an end.

“Following the incident, he messaged her an inappropriate message that led her to believe something was wrong.

“She deleted the message immediately and [later] found the camera.”

Minshull Street Crown Court.

Mitigating, Brigid Baillie said: “He was isolated. He has not had a relationship and spent his time on his computer watching adult pornography.

“He has experienced some trauma in recent years - his brother died and this was brought on by a faulty gene.

“He has now discovered he also suffers with this faulty gene.

“His character references show him to be a helpful, hardworking young man.

“In his pre-sentence report, he comes across as a loner that watched porn, but he has started the process to seek help and has started down the road in realising what he has done.

“These proceedings have made him understand how much worse it must have been for her. Custody will not see him get the help he so desperately needs. He needs help with his social life.”

Sentencing, Judge Angela Nield told Cooksey: “She felt degraded and violated by this behaviour. This was extremely upsetting for both complainants.”

Cooksey was ordered to take part in the sex offender treatment programme; complete 180 hours unpaid work and pay £1,000 compensation to each victim.

He was also ordered to sign the sex offender register for 10 years.

My opinion

As an IT expert, Peter Cooksey misused his expertise. Hopefully he will repent.

To all women out there, please take care of yourself. You dont know if you are being spied at home. You should learn how to find hidden cameras at your home. It would be easier if you just buy RF detector.
