Man faces sex crimes after camera use, child porn

A man from Kansas' neighboring state of Missouri is facing a variety of allegations in connection with placing cameras throughout his neighbors' residence. The man, who told authorities that he has a general craving for excitement that is only satisfied by breaking the law, is accused of sex crimes including possession of child pornography. He is also facing allegations of invasion of privacy, weapons charges and drug charges. The defendant's bond was set at $100,000, but it is not clear whether he has yet been released.

The defendant, age 46, is accused of placing cameras in his neighbors' ceiling. The woman who lived in that house said she had noticed a strange noise above her bathroom, but she decided that it was probably nothing. Later that evening, she found that insulation particles had fallen onto her toilet. The woman's husband checked in the attic, where he found a camera. He described a 'tug of war' with someone in the adjoining duplex unit; when he pulled the cord free, the end had been cut.

In addition to placing the cameras in his neighbor's house, the man reportedly was operating a methamphetamine laboratory in his attic. Investigators also allegedly found photographs of young girls who were not wearing clothing. A rifle was also located in the man's home; he is facing weapons charges because he is a known felon who is not permitted to own a firearm.

Criminal defendants who are facing sex offense allegations in conjunction with other criminal charges may benefit from the assistance of a Kansas attorney. These professionals may be able to help defendants learn more about the impact of various crimes and their long-term consequences. Further, a criminal defense attorney may protect defendants' legal rights in court.
