Former court clerk fined for voyeurism

A former Reading Crown Court official has been slapped with a fine after he was caught trying to secretly film a teenage girl in the shower.

Trevor Rudge, who used to be a clerk at Old Shire Hall in The Forbury, was given a £500 fine after he admitted one count of voyeurism, observing a person doing a private act, at Aylesbury Crown Court on Wednesday.

The 60-year-old, of Westmead Drive, Newbury, set up a mobile phone to record a 16-year-old undressing in a bathroom on Saturday, February 20, last year.

The girl spotted the phone and the police were called.

Rudge was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £150 and a £15 victim surcharge.
