BIRMINGHAM, England, May 12 (UPI) -- An English college student who wore a skin-tight mask and wig to sneak into ladies' toilets has been spared a prison term.

Joel Hardman, 22, was ordered to get psychological treatment, The Sun reported Thursday. He must also register as a sex offender for five years.

Hardman was arrested at the Bullring, a shopping center in Birmingham, after a shopper told a security guard she had seen a "mannequin" heading into the ladies' room.

Police said they searched him and found snapshots of women's feet and a recording of a flushing toilet.

Sophia Ali, Hardman's lawyer, said he was thoroughly ashamed of himself. Jonathan Purser, the prosecutor, said he scared a lot of people.
