A MAN has been made to sign the sex offenders register for five years after he recorded a ‘private act’.

Ashley Joseph Knox took the video for his own sexual gratification knowing the person didn’t consent on September 6, 2019 in Wallingford.

The 23-year-old, of High Wycombe, appeared at Oxford Magistrates Court on November 11 charged with the single count of voyeurism.

He was made to forfeit his mobile phone and sim card to be destroyed and was ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work in the next 12 months as part of a community order.

Knox will also take part in the Horizon Sex Offender programme for 43 days and will pay compensation of £250.
