British man accused of spying on Chinese Olympic swimmers

A man has appeared in a British court for sentencing after admitting spying on members of the Chinese Olympic swimming team in a women's changing room.

Declan Crosbie is accused of peering over the top of cubicles as members of the team were getting changed at a sports center where they were training in the northern city of Leeds.

The 25-year-old pleaded guilty last month to a charge of trespassing with intent to commit a sexual offense.

A spokeswoman for Leeds Crown Court said Tuesday that Crosbie's sentencing was delayed until September 17.

Crosbie has previous convictions for voyeurism and trespassing.

Judge Peter Collier said he would consider sentencing Crosbie to a treatment course of sex offenders.
