A MAN caught taking photographs up women’s skirts in supermarkets has been ordered to pay compensation.

Construction worker Robert Jameson, 56, who has no previous convictions, targeted three women while they were out shopping.

He was ordered to pay £100 compensation to each victim and was given a three-year community order after admitting three counts of outraging public decency between July 2011 and November last year.

Jameson, of Cornwell Close, Gosport, was told to attend 100 sessions of a sex offender group work programme by Fareham magistrates.

He must pay £85 costs and £60 to a fund for crime victims.

Jameson had targeted two women at Asda in Speedfields Park, Fareham, and a third at Sainsbury’s in Broadcut, Fareham.

The most recent victim was a 39-year-old who had bent down to look at items in the toiletries aisle at the Asda store when another woman alerted her.

The witness pointed at Jameson, who appeared to be looking at something on his mobile phone. The court heard he started to walk off but the woman followed him, saying ‘you know what you’ve done’.

Staff were alerted and Jameson was later arrested.

Previously, Jameson was caught in the act by a 48-year-old woman at the same store.

Police later discovered he had also targeted a 49-year-old woman at Sainsbury’s.
