Man who filmed neighbours having sex and shared it online jailed

A man who filmed his neighbours having sex and then uploaded the videos to a porn site has been jailed.

Indonesian national Wawan Pradiat arrived in Australia three years ago seeking an unforgettable experience - and that is now guaranteed as he will be spending his last few weeks here behind bars.

Pradiat filmed his neighbours in their most private and intimate moments, in a disturbing invasion of personal privacy.

The couple being filmed went to police after a friend found video of them having sex while surfing the web.

Police searched Pradiat's laptop and discovered four other videos of his female housemates in the shower.

In an interview, he told investigators he didn't know what he was doing was illegal.

He also claimed he had uploaded the videos to a porn website by accident and that they were intended for his personal use.

Unfortunately for his victims, those videos were viewed and downloaded so many times, they will never be erased from the internet.

Pradiat was jailed for 8 months, but will be eligible for parole in less than six weeks, after which his 457 visa may be cancelled.

The immigration department will decide whether to deport him upon his release.
