Portfolio manager Nigel Parsons, who hid an iPhone in work showers to watch women colleagues undressing, faces jail. The 34-year-old finance boss set up the handset in a bathroom at top investment firm Bestinvest in Chesterfield Gardens, Mayfair to record footage of workmates in February this year.
He was found out when a colleague spotted the iPhone and found recordings of herself and a number of other co-workers as they showered naked. Parsons pleaded guilty to two counts of voyeurism after two recordings were made between February 17 and 21 this year. He was released on bail but was warned that custodial sentences are an extremely likely outcome.
But that’s not all with Parsons also admitting making or possessing 61 indecent photographs and distributing one image of children between four and ten-years-old. Unsurprisingly, he resigned from Bestinvest in February after the allegations surfaced. He will be sentenced on January 8 next year.
A spokesman for Bestinvest had this to say: “He [Nigel Parsons] resigned from his employment at Bestinvest in February 2012 following an allegation of serious gross misconduct relating to his personal behavior.”
