The former co-owner of the Two Chefs and a Table restaurant location in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside has been given 12 months probation for installing a hidden camera in the washroom of his now-closed restaurant.

Allan Bosomworth appeared in provincial court today for a case that first began more than two years ago. Just before Christmas 2012, according to court documents, his business partner found a tiny spy camera in the washroom at a place where customers or employees “could reasonably be expected to be nude – to expose their genital organs and/or anal region.”

However, it was not until September 2013 that Bosomworth turned himself to police after a warrant was issued for his arrest. A year later on September 24, 2014, Bosomworth pleaded guilty in court to a single count of “secretly observing nudity in a private space.”

He could have faced up to five years in prison, but the judge decided to enforce a suspended sentence of 12 months probation, require him to provide authorities with a DNA sample, and ban him from possessing a photo and/or video recording device.

The Richmond location of Two Chefs And A Table restaurant remains open and is not connected to the incident. Bosomworth’s former business is also not implicated in the criminal matter.
