A pensioner who used a mirror to peep under a toilet door to spy on a shopper at Hamley's toy store in London faces jail. Charles Corbet, 70, of Callcott Road in north-west London, spied on the victim at the flagship Regents Street store on 3 August.
He was already banned from loitering at toilets, and from possessing a mirror in a toilet, under a Sexual Harm Prevention Order imposed on him in July 2012. He will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on 17 October for sentencing after he was found guilty at an earlier hearing. He faces up to 18 months in jail and an unlimited fine.
Preparing for sentencing, district judge Alexander Jacobs said he was waiting for a neuro psychologist's report on whether the defendant is autistic. Corbett has previous convictions for similar offences at Imperial College London and London School of Economics.
Hamley's Toy Store was the scene of another attack last year when convicted sex offender Peter Grant, 61, inappropriately touched a nine-year-old girl. He was arrested after the grandmother of the victim, who had been playing with a toy car with her brother, spotted Grant touching the girl's bottom in photos she took of the children playing.
