Benjamin Moorhouse allegedly placed secret cameras under the sink of toilets at Parramatta and North Sydney train stations, and at a disabled toilet at Westfield Parramatta shopping centre, in February and March.
Man secretly filmed in public toilets
Benjamin Moorhouse allegedly placed secret cameras under the sink of Sydney toilets and filmed more than 200 people.
The 40-year-old, who was arrested on March 22, appeared at Parramatta Local Court on Wednesday, where his lawyer indicated he would plead guilty to all charges.
Moorhouse is charged with five counts of filming a person in a private act for the purpose of “sexual arousal or sexual gratification”.
Two of those charges are aggravated because the alleged victims, a boy and a girl, were under 16.
Moorhouse is also charged with three counts of installing a device to film people without consent.
It is further alleged Moorhouse “engaged in a private act” without the consent of the victims.
The 40-year-old, who was dressed in a suit when he appeared before a magistrate on Wednesday, later ran from the court complex wearing a hooded jumper, jeans and sunglasses.

Police say they found Moorhouse with a camera similar to those uncovered at the stations when they arrested him outside his Parramatta home a month ago.
Almost 100 people were filmed at a Parramatta train station toilet between February 13 and 14, while another 23 were filmed on the morning of February 10 in a toilet at North Sydney station, according to court documents.
The cameras were found by train staff.
About 100 people were also allegedly filmed in a Westfield Parramatta disabled toilet between March 17 and 20.
Moorhouse’s bail was continued until his next court appearance on May 31.
