Man Pleads Guilty To Putting Camera In Rec Center Changing Room
GREELEY, Colo. (CBS4) – A man has pleaded guilty on charges he hid a camera in a changing room at a recreation center.
Justin Robert West appeared in a Weld County courtroom Wednesday morning as part of a plea deal. As part of the deal West pleaded guilty to two charges — a felony and misdemeanor. Three other were charges dropped.
Police say last summer a woman found a camera located inside an air freshener in the changing area of the Family Fun Plex Recreation Center in Greeley. Police were able to get West’s image from the camera and he was later arrested in August at his home in Iowa and brought back to Greeley to face the charges.
In court on Wednesday West kept his head down for most of the proceedings.
According to prosecutors, Iowa City police are investigating a similar case involving West where images were taken of people without their consent. In some cases, prosecutors say the images are of children.
West will have his bond remain in the amount of $150,000. He is scheduled to be sentenced in March. At sentencing the judge has discretion what type of punishment West could face.
