A MAN filmed up the skirts of unsuspecting females at a shopping park with his iPhone.
Paul Tracey Baines, 49, pleaded guilty to outraging public decency when he appeared at a preliminary hearing at Mold Crown Court.
He was ordered to register with the police as a sex offender and was bailed pending sentence.
But Judge Niclas Parry said all options including custody would remain open.
Baines, of Tegid Drive, New Broughton, near Wrexham, committed the offence at Broughton Retail Park in the summer.
He had previously pleaded not guilty to observing another person doing a private act in order to get sexual gratification and had elected trial in the crown court.
Henry Hills, defending, said that was clearly the wrong charge.
Prosecutor David Mainstone amended the charge and Barnes pleaded guilty to outraging public decency.
The charge said he committed an act of a lewd and disgusting nature by secretly filming up the skirts of unsuspecting females at the retail park.
Judge Parry described it as a slightly unusual case but said Barnes had pleaded guilty to the new charge at the earliest possible time and he would receive full credit when it came to sentence.
Baines was bailed so a pre-sentence report can be prepared.
He will return to be sentenced in November.
His bail conditions ban him from Broughton Retail Park.
He is also not to possess any mobile phone which has video recording or camera equipment installed.
