Cleaner who admitted to filming women in toilets at Sydney train stations has avoided immediate jail time.
Father-of-two Michael Szafranek has been sentenced to a 9-month suspended jail term after Sydney magistrate Bernard Kennedy described his chances of rehabilitation as ‘good’.
Szafranek admitted to setting up an iPhone in the accessible toilet at Rockdale train station to record bathroom visitors while employed as a cleaner for Sydney trains. He was caught in February when a passenger discovered the hidden camera recording her using the bathroom.
Mr Szafranek avoided the media outside the court, with his lawyer stating he wanted to “let this matter pass”.
Sydney trains have released a statement saying that Szafranek’s employment is under review following the court outcome.
