A pervert hid himself in the changing areas of the Time Capsule in order to spy on people while they were undressing.
Adam Docherty (25) made a hole in a cubicle at the leisure complex so he could watch as others unwittingly removed their clothes.
Sneaky Docherty then proceeded to carry out a sex act on himself while in the cubicle.
He was also found to be in possession of a kitchen knife and two screw drivers while in the changing area and had arranged towels in such a way that they concealed his presence while he loitered there.
Docherty carried out the offence on June 3 this year and was placed on probation at Airdrie Sheriff Court but he breached the order and returned to the dock.
He was already on probation before the Time Capsule incident for an earlier offence which he carried out between July 25 and August 8, 2008, at his former address in Spruce Road, Cumbernauld. On that occasion Docherty was found to be in possession of indecent images and photos of children.
Sheriff Frank Pieri revoked the accused’s probation order and sentenced him to six months in jail.
