The self-confessed sex addict preyed on visitors and guests at his various homes across County Durham – in Darlington, West Cornforth and Trimdon – over nine years.
On occasions, Potter put his iPhone in a bedroom to film women and teenage girls getting undressed.
Teesside Crown Court heard that the 41-year-old repeatedly sexually assaulted two people who made regular visits to his home to see his wife, Donna.
He won his victims’ silence by making them feel guilty, telling them nobody would believe them, and if they told anybody, it would ruin people’s lives.
In impact statements, his victims told how their ordeals at the hands of the former call centre worker have left them struggling to cope with daily life.
One woman, who later suffered a breakdown, described Potter’s split personality, and said he would often apologise after abusing her.
