Lap Kwan Yue pleaded guilty to charges of voyeurism and possession of child pornography Thursday in Lethbridge Provincial Court.
Police were informed in March of this year about a suspicious man hanging out in the mens' change room. When questioned by police he admitted recording other pool users in the dressing room, both men and boys.
A search of his phone and other electronic devices turned up well over 1,000 images and videos, 166 of them children.
The 19 year old has been in Canada on a student visa since 2014. While that visa doesn’t expire until 2021, it is anticipated that he will be deported back to Hong Kong after completing his time in custody.
