There are allegations that a UK police officer used spy cameras to capture naked models during phoney photoshoots he arranged while off duty.
When hiring glamour models and prostitutes online, 40-year-old Neil Corbel supplied false information about himself, the court heard.
Chief magistrate Paul Goldspring said Corbel ‘went to pretty remarkable efforts to disguise what he was doing, adding that he may be handed a jail term during his sentencing on October 4.
It wasn’t until one of his victims, who had consented to pose for nude pictures, grew suspicious of his digital clock and uncovered a concealed camera that the police began investigating him.
Corbel’s hard drive included images of 51 women, and police were able to track down 19 more women who would testify against him.
Babatunde Alabi said: ‘By and large, all of them were models. Only one of the others consented to be videotaped, the others did not.
According to him, the escorted victims had consented to have sex with the defendant but not to be videotaped in order to protect their privacy.
Two of the models were rumoured to have been in a relationship with the policeman, according to reports.
Reports from forensic psychologists and addiction specialists, according to the defence side, will help them in their mitigation claims.
A judge at Westminster Magistrates Court might sentence him to prison next month.
Between January 2017 and February 2020, he allegedly committed a series of crimes in the cities of London, Brighton, and Manchester that were unrelated to his employment as a police officer.
