Washington, Feb 11 (ANI): A former equipment manager at the University of Texas has been arrested and charged for filming women taking showers in the school's locker room.
According to MyFoxAustin, Rene Zamora was arrested in November 2010, and a grand jury indicted him in February. He now faces 40 charges of improper photography, which is a felony, Fox News reported.
According to an affidavit, Zamora was caught when a showering junior noticed a camera lens propped above her shower curtain while rinsing her hair after a track meet.
She screamed and heard retreating footsteps, but she recognized the man was Zamora, and shouted "Rene!" he yelled, "Sorry!" as he made his way out of the locker room.
She dressed, exited the building and Zamora once more yelled "sorry".
Zamora told the student in a text message that he deleted the video, but the student informed her coach about the incident.
A few days after the alleged September 3, 2010, video taping, university police questioned Zamora, and he admitted that he used a video camera, but said the woman yelled his name just at the moment he attempted to hit record.
He assured police that the camera did not successfully record the student, but his statement contradicted the alleged text message he had sent her.
School police searched his apartment and found 1,253 objects on computer devices; twenty were identified as pictures, and the others were movie streams.
The majority included women in "various stages of dress in what appeared to be a women's locker room". (ANI)
