Richard Wright QC & Kate Batty Prosecute Police Helicopter Voyeurism Case

Richard Wright QC and Kate Batty are prosecuting a ‘sex obsessed’ cop who used a camera on board a police helicopter to record a video of his “friends’ having sex, amongst other incidents of filming.

Richard Wright QC & Kate Batty Prosecute Police Helicopter Voyeurism Case. The court heard there was “no legitimate reason” for the cops to film them and “no basis” for flying over people’s homes, they were merely selecting them as targets and filming them. Mr Wright QC told the court “On three separate occasions they filmed a couple having sexual intercourse in their own garden. They recorded what they saw using the recording facilities that the helicopter was equipped with.”

The court heard there was “no legitimate reason” for the cops to film them and “no basis” for flying over people’s homes, they were merely selecting them as targets and filming them.

Mr Wright QC said the recordings were “not simply the product of one swinging and sexual obsessed air observer, but were made with the connivance of the other members of the crew”. He said one of the Police Officers, Pogmore, who did not appear in court, had pre-planned the meeting with his “swinging friends” to be hovering above their home at the same moment the couple appeared.

Pogmore pleaded guilty to the charges earlier this week and does not stand trial alongside his former colleagues. The trial at Sheffield Crown Court will conclude in early August.
