Bibek Guragain, who was arrested in June for secretly filming illicit videos of Woolworth's employees and customers in Surry Hills Woolworths has been sentenced to ten months (six months non parole) jail sentence on Thursday. He has publicly apologised for his actions and says he is still trying to figure out why he did it.
The court heard he had 250 images saved on his phone camera when he was caught, including images captured in the toilet of his colleagues' change room.
"They were completely ignorant," said Magistrate Joanne Keogh, during sentencing.
Guragain pleaded guilty to three charges of filming a person without consent and one of filming private parts to gain sexual gratification.
Guragain was on a student visa, and was on his third year of a four year engineering course at UTS.
His visa has been since revoked and is being held at Villawood Immigration Detention Centre since June. He will be eligible for parole in December as the time spent at the detention centre is being kept into account.
