Craig Allan Weir, 31, of Gascoyne Way, pleaded guilty to offensive behaviour in a public place before Magistrate Doug Dick in Batemans Bay Local Court on February 9.

Police facts presented to the court said that on the afternoon of January 18, the defendant shadowed a girl in a supermarket in Clyde Street, Batemans Bay.

When she leaned forward, Weir used his mobile phone to film under her skirt.

A customer told staff, who asked Weir to leave and followed him to the town wharf, where he again appeared to be photographing females.

Police arrested him and took his phone.

It held a video dated January 18 depicting the buttocks of two females wearing shorts and pants.

He told police he “may have bumped it and accidentally filmed them”.

Asked about another image of a female, Weir told police he took it because she was “hot”.

Weir appeared in Nowra Local Court on Monday before Magistrate Dr Gabriel Fleming and was bailed to reappear for sentencing on March 30.
