Voyeur accountant avoids jail term

Mark Logan, who was the finance director of the Wheatley Group, used hidden cameras to secretly film colleagues in bathrooms and hotel rooms

Logan, who is from Glasgow, made almost 700 recordings, including on business trips, over a 12-month period and also sexually assaulted someone while they were asleep, according to several reports.

He pleaded guilty to the charges of voyeurism and sexual assault at Glasgow Sheriff Court and was sentenced before Sheriff Joseph Platt.

He was ordered to serve a serve a two-year supervision order and was warned if he breached the terms he could face a jail sentence. The court also ordered all videos and the devices they were filmed on to be destroyed.

Advocate Anthony Graham, Logan’s solicitor, told the court his client had “essentially given up his entire career” as a result of his crimes. He said, according to a report in the Glasgow Evening Times, “As a chartered accountant in the public sector he was in receipt of a substantial six-figure salary and pension rights.

“He goes from that place to a disciplinary hearing with the Institute of Chartered Accountants, which may not end his career totally but will certainly diminish it.”

Sheriff Platt told Logan, “My primary concern [is] the protection of the public and anyone else who may become a victim of your behaviour.

“The steps you took to renounce your employment have had a devastating effect on you and your family and I don’t think a further punitive element is required,” he added.
