A man who took secret films of hundreds of teenage hockey players has been jailed for 18 months, eight months suspended.
The public prosecution department had called for a four-year jail term for Luigi C, who hid a camera in the hockey club dressing rooms to film the girls. He also had a large collection of child pornography.
The offences took place at the HGC hockey club in Wassenaar and at the HDM club in The Hague. In total, he made at least 116 videos at the clubs, a large number of which the prosecution department said should be considered child porn.
In total, girls from 36 different clubs were recorded and 100 hours of material were found. Most of the girls were over the age of 16 but some were as young as 12.
Two other men were also arrested in connection with the case.
