NLA member’s son convicted of up-skirting in London

The Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday (Mar 21) also banned Pratyayoud Tupchareon, 27, a student at Regent’s University, from entering the City of Westminster, an area of central London, for four months.

He was ordered to wear a electronic tag showing his location for 12 weeks, with a 7pm to 6am curfew.

Pratyayoud had been caught filming underneath the skirts of women in Topshop, a women’s clothing outlet on Oxford Street, the report said.

The shop’s security guards noticed Pratyayoud had moved close to several women and placed his rucksack on the floor beside them.

When they inspected his bag they found a camera with the lens sticking out. The camera contained video taken underneath the skirts of several women.

Mr Pratyayoud told authorities he was inspired by “upskirting videos" on YouTube.

According to the Daily Mail he admitted a charge of outraging public decency.

District Judge Elizabeth Roscoe said: “Mr Tupchareon, I don’t know what you were thinking, you’re 27 years old, you’re not a child. You are extremely lucky that you have a very supportive family but this is your responsibility and it was outrageous behaviour – unpleasant, disrespectful and potentially, deeply offensive.

“I do accept, because nothing else was found on any of your media equipment, that this was just a one off occasion and I do accept that this was not for your own sexual gratification.

“Though had you been successful, I cannot imagine that you would not have shown others. It was very stupid, clearly you have hurt your family, who must be appalled and shocked. And it is time that you accept responsibility for your own actions and in my view that requires a community order.”

Pratyayoud’s father, Mr Youdthana, is a former governor of the State Railway of Thailand. He and his wife Ms Jutipon, a court judge, were present for the court ruling.

Not sure I get how his (apparent) lack of sexual pleasure is a factor in sentencing. It's a privacy issue against the women. That's the issue.

I don't believe the guy who stole the pictures off the wall even lost his job. Losing Face is a convenient excuse that allows you to disrespect others and their cultures.  As in "I have to screw you here, I can't lose face". nothing more

I am just wondering if you would have enlighten us all with this post, if the guy was not the son of a well known politician.

I'll just leave this one alone, as this young man has brought enough shame on his family to earn him the "Face Losing" championship...taking the trophy from the Thai official that got caught stealing pictures of the wall of his hotel in Japan.

Wow, wow, wow. This conviction the dirty thai boy and his family will carry with them for the rest of their lives
He has a criminal record now
Just a electronic tag only?
No detention, no hefty fine, even allowed to remain in UK to study Never get job there 

A example for thai to compare with their justice system 
Thinking about the Russian girl waiting for her thai trial over some shells
