Man charged after allegedly filming in Lismore public toilet

A 44-year-old man will face court after he was charged for allegedly filming people using a public toilet in Lismore earlier this month.

Police say that around 10am on Thursday 8 March,  the man was using a public toilet facility in Union Street when he noticed a man looking over the stall wall at him.

Police attended and allegedly found a mobile phone on the man that contained multiple images of people using public toilet facilities.

About 11.30am yesterday (Thursday 22 March), the man was arrested at a house in Corndale and taken to Lismore police station and charged with committing an act of indecency and two counts of filming a person in a private act without consent.

He was refused bail and is expected to appear in Lismore Local Court today (Friday).

Investigations are continuing.

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
