Staff Report

Allen Sze was sentenced to one year in jail on Friday in connection with two counts of voyeurism and one count of attempted voyeurism after he recorded women at Hartman Pool in Redmond last year, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

Sze originally pleaded not guilty to eight counts of voyeurism when he was charged in October.

When he pleaded guilty, the prosecuting attorney’s office recommended he serve 12 months in jail, 36 months of community custody and register as a sex offender and enter sex offender treatment, to which he was sentenced.

The 25-year-old former WAVE Aquatics lifeguard was charged after a cell phone was found taped inside the women’s staff locker room at the pool on Sept. 7, 2016. Redmond police arrested Sze that morning while he was on duty.

Police received a tip that a Woodinville High School girls swim coach called 911 on Sept. 7 after a team member found the phone. The team was using the pool for practice at the time.

Sze’s phone and iPad were reviewed by police, who determined the phone was only placed in the women’s staff locker room and there was no evidence that the videos were shared.

Nine additional videos were found on the phone dating back to June of last year. They depicted three 16-year-old girls and one additional woman.
