A LITTLEHAMPTON man has been found guilty of voyeurism and taking indecent images of a child.
Jon Millhouse, 57, unemployed of Gloucester Road, was charged with one count of voyeurism, seven counts of taking indecent images between January 2012 and May 2012, and two counts of non-penetrative sexual activity with a child.
Millhouse stood trial at Chichester Crown Court accused of filming a teenage girl with the purpose of sexual gratification and also of touching her bottom.
On Friday, November 29, he was found guilty of the voyeurism and indecent images but not guilty for the sexual activity with a child.
Detective Constable Tim Hughes said: “Millhouse tried to excuse his actions but what he did, by covertly filming the victim, has had a profound effect on her. I am extremely pleased a jury has today found him guilty of these crimes and that he has been punished accordingly.
“The victim showed great courage in speaking about Millhouse’s actions in court and is being supported so she can continue with her life.
“I would urge anyone who has been subjected to any kind of sexual abuse to report it to police as they will always be given the support and help they need.”
Millhouse will be sentenced at Chichester Crown Court on January 10.
