BELLE CHASSE, La. – A 34-year-old man was arrested on video voyeurism charged. He is accused of secretly recording his future step-daughter, according to the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office.
On Sept. 25, a woman told the sheriff’s office she found nude videos of her daughter on the family computer. The videos looked as if they were recorded with a hidden camera and without the 15-year-old girl’s consent, said the sheriff’s office.
“Upon examining the videos, the mother discovered that her fiancé was captured in some of the images while positioning the camera. When the mother confronted the fiancé, he allegedly admitted that he had recorded the videos, saying he ‘was sick back then,’ and left the residence after packing his belongings,” said a statement from the sheriff’s office.
According to the sheriff’s office, detectives believe the videos were made between December 2012 and June 2013 by the man with his cell phone and then downloaded them to the family’s computer.
The man was arrested by detectives on Sept. 26 around 2 a.m. He was found sleeping inside his vehicle in the parking lot of a Belle Chasse business.
Under questioning, the man admitted to making the recordings and gave a full confession, according to the sheriff’s office, saying said he made the recordings because he was curious and sick.
