Defence lawyer Michael Brugman said Hall was deeply ashamed of his behaviour.

A search of his house and car led police to seize three pen cameras, six computers, 19 hard drives, 51 USB sticks, 82 data cards, 14 digital recording devices and a large number of DVDs and CDs.
Sen-Sgt Iddles said police in the e-crime squad assessed only half the content and still found 1111 videos of people using the toilet as well as hundreds of images and other videos from around the cafe.
“Nearly all of the file subjects were female and appeared to be aged between 15 and 30 years of age,” he said.
