Ratna Babu Bolleddu, 25, spied on her roommate for four months for her own sexual pleasure after installing a camera hidden in a smoke detector in her room at the Burwood unit they shared.
“The amount of preparation and pre-planning that involved this … could never be described as impulsive,” Judge Lisa Stapleton told Burwood Local Court on Tuesday.
“I think it’s disgusting.”
Bolleddu’s victim said the incident left him in shock eight months later.
“What broke my mind was that the very person I trust has invaded my privacy,” said the victim in an impact statement.
“Eight months later, I am in shock and it is difficult for me to trust people again.”
During the presentation of the sentence, Bolledu’s lawyer said his client was alone and was putting his life back on track.
The court heard that the 25-year-old now lives in another apartment shared with his new girlfriend and another couple.
His lawyer said Bolledu took steps to reform and apologized to the victim.
He was sentenced to 300 hours of community service at the CCO, in addition to being forced to complete a program with a psychologist.
Bolleddu was convicted of filming someone in private without consent, while another charge, relating to the installation of a device to record a private conversation, was dismissed.
