An Edmonton man arrested after printing a portion of his massive collection of child pornography at a self-serve Superstore photo kiosk was sentenced to three years and six months in prison Tuesday. Bradley Jeffrey Lenz, 35, also planted a spy camera inside a female public washroom at a Wabamun Lake beach to collect more images of young girls that included more than 28, photos and videos. In May , Lenz used a kiosk at an Edmonton Superstore to print hundreds of his pornographic images. The first time, Lenz encountered no problems, Crown prosecutor Craig Krieger previously told court. The second time, the kiosk ran out of paper and Lenz left the store. Eight days later, he entered the same grocery store to use the kiosk a third time, was recognized by an employee and later arrested. Investigators searched the home and found his child pornography, including photos of children and adults using the Wabamun Lake bathroom. Lenz pleaded guilty to two charges of possessing child pornography, one count of making child pornography and two breaches of his bail conditions. After his sentence, Lenz will be on probation for two years. He is banned from areas where children gather, such as parks and swimming pools, and cannot be an employee or volunteer around children.

A court heard West Yorkshire Police officer Marc Silkstone hid a covert camera inside a smoke alarm in order to film a year-old victim. Silkstone, 37, was arrested in September last year after the teenager became suspicious when she noticed a flashing red light on the device. Angus MacDonald, prosecuting, said Silkstone was out on patrol when he was contacted and asked to return to the police station.
There simply are not enough devices out there that pander to the tin-foil hat crowd. Well, the Hong Kong company Brando is looking to fix that. This spy cam represents the ongoing trend of cameras changing how we live and how we think about privacy. This little guy is capable of shooting color video at 29 frames per second, still images or just audio and easily transfers files to a computer using USB. It has 2 GB of memory and a rechargeable lithium ion battery. Since most of life is spent searching for the car, it is more than likely that the spy camera will always be in hand and ready to shoot. But is Big Brother really becoming so mainstream that everybody will own one of these? Here on Singularity Hub, we have covered the privacy debate when it comes to small recording devices and this keychain continues the trend of dwindling personal privacy. As this technology becomes more accessible, more reliable and smaller, it can possibly be implemented in many more places. This debate applies not just the tin foil hat crowd that will purchase the spy camera keychain but to everybody, as this technology is already in many cellular phones and handheld devices.
By Beh Lih Yi. Eyeglasses installed with a hidden camera at a spy camera shop in the port city of Incheon. As digital sex crimes rise worldwide, South Korea has become the global epicentre of spycam, with victims overwhelmingly women. GIMHAE, South Korea: The wedding hall was booked and home furnishing all bought but the bride — one of thousands of women to fall victim to an epidemic of high-tech voyeurism in South Korea — is not here. Lee Yu-jung took her own life after a colleague secretly filmed her in the changing room of the hospital where they both worked, the country's first reported 'spycam' death. Footage of Lee was found among a bigger cache of video of women, all illegally snatched in the country's spycam epidemic, often with cheap devices as small as a key ring. I don't want to believe that she's gone," said Lee Young-tae, father of the year-old pathologist, who killed herself by leaping from a building in September. As digital sex crimes rise worldwide, South Korea has become the global epicentre of spycam — the use of tiny, hidden cameras to film victims naked, urinating or mid-sex. Most victims are women — rights groups say the scandal is indicative of wider sexism in society — and Lee's case has spotlighted the mental toll it can take on its victims, along with the leniency of punishments meted out to many men. Before Lee died, her father said she had taken to drink and anti-depressants after police caught the man filming illicitly in a supermarket, only to discover his stash of secret footage, her naked body among the many women he had previously filmed.
