Man who worked for Greater Manchester Police sentenced for secretly filming men as they used the toilet
Jean-Renoir Janga, 36, was sentenced today to an 18-month community order following his conviction at Manchester Crown Court on the 16th July 2021 for 6 counts of Voyeurism.
All the offences were committed in the autumn of 2017 when Janga set up his mobile phone in the gent’s toilets where he secretly filmed men using the toilet facilities.
The voyeuristic images came to light when Janga’s phone was examined by the police.
Janga denied all the offences he was charged with and took the case through to trial where he was found guilty on all counts.
Brett Gerrity of CPS North West said:
"Janga has invaded the privacy of these victims by filming them whilst they used the toilet for his own depraved sexual gratification.
"Janga denied the offences throughout the investigation in the face of the overwhelming evidence. The jury rejected his fanciful story as to why he had filmed men using the toilet and convicted him based on the evidence presented by the prosecution.
"I am grateful to the victims who gave evidence at trial and provided victim impact statements. I hope today's sentence will provide them with some comfort and reassure the public that the CPS will work with the police to build strong cases against sex offenders."
