The former carpenter and tax-driver’s seedy operation came to light when two young girls aged 12 and 14 refused to go to swimming lessons at the Aura Leisure Centre in Letterkenny after they became victims of the pervert.

Detective Garda Stephen Moyles said the sisters were in a changing cubicle on November 15, 2017 when the younger girl noticed a mobile phone appear beneath the partition with the adjacent cubicle.

The girl believed that she and her sister were being recorded. They didn’t initially tell their parents but the following week they refused to go swimming and told their father what had happened.

Instead of confronting the accused, the man decided to monitor Nugent in the changing rooms in a communal area.

The man, who cannot be named to protect the victims, said he saw Nugent using a phone and mirror to spy on a woman and a child in a cubicle.

Detective Garda Moyles said the witness also observed Nugent engage in “an act clearly described as masturbation” after watching a young girl shower.

The outraged man finally confronted Nugent and escorted him off the premises but brazen Nugent whispered to him: “You’ll never f***ing catch me.”

The man informed staff and Gardai who viewed CCTV footage and identified the accused.

Before he could be arrested however, Nugent fled to Scotland but was later arrested and brought back to Ireland on a European Arrest Warrant. He has been in Castlerea Prison on these charges since October 7, 2021.

Nugent, with an address at Killyclug, Letterkenny, pleaded guilty to engaging in an act of masturbation in a public place, the Aura Leisure Centre, on November 21, 2017.

Nugent also pleaded guilty to three counts of intentionally engaging in offensive behaviour of a sexual nature at Aura Leisure Centre on November 15, 2017 and November 21, 2017.

He also pleaded guilty to intentionally engaging in offensive behaviour of a sexual nature on November 22, 2017 on an occasion other than that referred to at the Aura Leisure Centre

His barrister, Mr Sean McGee, said his client was remoresful and had no previous convictions.

Judge John Aylmer remanded him in custody until next Wednesday, November 2, 2022, when he will sentence Nugen
