Guilty plea in voyeurism case

Former paramedic gets probation for hidden camera crime

  • Mar. 25, 2015 5:00 p.m.

A 26-year-old man plead guilty on March 24 to a charge of voyeurism stemming from a hidden camera incident in 100 Mile House last March.

Ilyas Buksh, a former paramedic, was granted a conditional discharge and placed on probation for two years. Some terms of his probation include a limitation on possessing electronic recording devices, that he not be within the city limits of 100 Mile House, and that he attend counselling.

Buksh placed a small video recording device resembling a pen in a washroom to secretly record patrons at Action Fitness in 100 Mile House. The device was discovered by proprietors of the local gym.

BC Emergency Health Services says Buksh resigned in April 2014.
