Family doctor who used 'James Bond-style' wristwatch to film himself abusing patients is sentenced to 12 years for string of sexual assaults
Dr Davinder Jeet Bains, 46, used his position as a GP in Royal Wootton Bassett, near Swindon, Wiltshire, to assault more than two dozen women
A family doctor who used a James Bond-style wristwatch to film himself abusing female patients has been jailed for 12 years after admitting a string of sex offences.
Dr Davinder Jeet Bains, 46, used his position as a GP at a medical practice in Royal Wootton Bassett, near Swindon, Wiltshire, to assault more than two dozen women, Swindon Crown Court heard.
After an earlier hearing in March Mr Bains, of Nyland Road, Swindon, had admitted to 13 charges of assault by penetration, 13 of voyeurism, 11 of sexual assault and two of sexual activity with a child.
He also asked for a further 65 offences - 10 of sexual assault by penetration, eight of sexual assault and 47 of voyeurism - to be taken into account when Judge Douglas Field passed sentence.
His not guilty pleas to three charges of sexual assault and a single count of administering a noxious drug with intent to commit a sexual offence were accepted by the Crown and will lie on file.
Detectives had likened the watch Mr Bains used to film the assaults to something out of a James Bond film.
He used a Tieex 4GB Waterproof HD Spy Watch DVR which was simple to operate and could be purchased off the internet for less than £60.
Detectives branded Bains a "sexual predator" and said he had covertly filmed more than 100 women.
Mr Bains committed offences against 27 women - aged from 14 to 51 - between July 2010 and May 2012.
The police investigation began in June last year when a 19-year-old woman told officers she thought Bains filmed her as she showered and said she had been sexually assaulted by him in Swindon.
When detectives arrested Bains at the Tinkers Lane Surgery in Royal Wootton Bassett, they discovered his hi-tech wristwatch with spy camera.
They later recovered 361 high-quality video clips from Bains's watch and home computer.
