A Malaysian passenger who put a camera in the toilet on a flight from California to Texas in the United States has pleaded guilty and will be deported.
Accused, Choon Ping Lee, a 50-year-old Malaysian passenger, pleaded guilty yesterday to posing as a spy camera for his viewing.
A Texas judge here on Tuesday sentenced him to a two-month jail sentence and a $ 6,000 fine.
The Justice Department said Ping Lee confessed to installing the camera in the first-floor toilet of the United Airlines flight from San Diego to Houston on May 5.
A female passenger found the device emitting blue light hanging near the door.
Ping Lee was identified through the image of the camera’s clothing and jewelry. The Malaysian have been detained since August 7.
The Justice Department said that since the accused was not a US citizen, he is expected to face proceedings to be deported back to Malaysia.
