Camera phone ban for peeping toilet teen
SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A Singapore man has been banned from owning a camera phone for a year after he was found guilty of secretly filming a woman in an airport toilet, a newspaper reported Tuesday.
Samuel Ong, 19, sneaked into a female toilet at Singapore's Changi Airport earlier this year and used his camera phone to snap shots of a woman from under the cubicle door. The woman caught him and reported him to the police.
Ong, who pleaded guilty, has to do 60 hours of community service, observe a curfew as part of his sentence and continue psychiatric treatment, the Straits Times reported.
His parents also had to sign a S$5,000 ($3,663) bond ensuring his good behavior.
Ong's lawyer pleaded for leniency saying that Ong was a good student and that he regretted bringing shame to his family.
