No jail for man who filmed girls using his rest room

The public prosecution department in Alkmaar has called for a six month suspended jail term and 180 hours of community service for a man who systematically filmed girls using the toilet at his home, the Volkskrant reports.

The man made recordings of seven girls between 2001 and 2009. The girls were part of a group of teenagers who often hung out at the man’s house in the Noord-Holland village of Schermerhorn.
The prosecution department said it had not asked for a jail term because the case had taken two years to come to court and the man had partly confessed.
