Burley Man Charged after Trying to Record Girl Showering
BURLEY, Idaho (AP) — A southern Idaho man police say used his iPhone to try to record a 14-year-old girl in the shower has been charged with felony video voyeurism.
The Times-News reports in a story on Thursday that 19-year-old Christian Eduardo Mahoney of Burley was charged in November in 5th District Court. A status hearing is set for Feb. 17.
The girl said that when she was 12 she found Mahoney's phone among the shampoo in a plastic bag. She filled the bag with water.
She also said she found his phone in a laundry basket in the bathroom last year.
Investigators say Mahoney told them he tried to spy on the girl after his friends talked about recording girls in the shower.
The charge could result in five years in prison.
