'Deviant' copter PC jailed for filming sex from sky

Pogmore was jailed for filming sex scenes

A British ex-police officer has been given a year in jail for using a helicopter to film people having sex.

Four inappropriate videos were shot using a high-powered camera from a South Yorkshire Police helicopter - including an 11-minute clip of a man and woman having intercourse in a garden - over a five-year period.

"You consider yourself to be literally as being above the law", commented judge Peter Kelson, the court of Sheffield (northern England).

Pogmore admitted four counts of misconduct in a public office and has been sacked by South Yorkshire Police.

He was described by his fellow officers as the "team deviant", and a "sex-obsessed air observer" after he filmed a couple having sex on their patio.

"In short, you used a helicopter of 2 million pounds (3.29 million $) which costs about 1,000 dollars per flight hour to satisfy your curiosity sexual then he would have had to be used to detect offences", he continued.

North Korea considering missile strike on Guam
The US flew two B1B bombers over the Korean peninsula on Monday, according to a spokesman with Pacific Air Forces. The plan would be reported to the North's Supreme Command soon, the spokesman said, without citing a date.

"Instead of deterring and detecting crime, you were committing crime", he added.

The judge described Pogmore as a "rogue police officer" whose actions had been "offensive and invasive".

"So strong were your sexual urges that you were willing to take, and did take, substantial risks of being detected by your colleagues in the helicopter at the time", Kelson said.

The other videos taken by Pogmore showed a mum sunbathing naked alongside her bikini clad-daughters in her Rotherham garden, and of two couples sunbathing on private land in Rotherham and Doncaster.

Pogmore was the only one present on each of the occasions that filming took place, a spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service said following the acquittals. "Nobody is above the law", said the judge. But his other victims were unaware they were being filmed and told the police they felt their privacy had been invaded.

Two other police officers and two helicopter pilots were tried and cleared after they told a jury that they had no idea what Pogmore was doing while on board the aircraft.
