Man who spied on Olympic swimming team sentence delayed
A court has delayed sentencing a British man who admitted spying on members of the Chinese Olympic swimming team in a women’s changing room.
Declan Crosbie is accused of peering over the top of the cubicles as members of the team were getting changed at a sports center where they were training in the northern city of Leeds. The swimmers were training in England ahead of the London Olympics.
The 25-year-old was caught after three members of the swimming team complained they saw him looking over the top of the changing room’s toilet cubicles. When staff at the sports center went to find him, he hid in a cubicle and answered in a woman’s voice.
He pleaded guilty last month to a charge of trespassing with intent to commit an offense.
A spokeswoman for Leeds Crown Court said Tuesday that Crosbie’s sentencing was delayed until Sept. 17.
Crosbie has previous convictions for voyeurism and trespassing.
Judge Peter Collier said he would consider sentencing Crosbie to a treatment course for offenders.
