Portable Toilet 'Peeping Tom' Gets 3 years

Recommended Posts

A US man who hid in the tank of a portable toilet to spy on women at a yoga festival has been jailed for three years.

Luke Chrisco was arrested at the event in Boulder County, Colorado, in 2011 after a woman noticed something moving in the tank below her.

She then saw a man covered in faeces emerge from the toilet and sprint off.

Police said Chrisco was also suspected of hiding in other public toilets in the area to spy on women for his sexual gratification.

The 32-year-old, originally from Grand Junction, pleaded guilty in July to attempted unlawful sexual contact and two counts of burglary.

Prosecutors dropped six other burglary charges and one count of criminal invasion as part of a plea bargain.

After the time he has already spent in custody, he may be released from prison in the next few months.

The Boulder County District Attorney's Office said after he is freed, he will be put on probation for 10 years and undergo mental health and sexual offender treatment.

Deputy District Attorney Catrina Weigel had asked for him to be jailed for eight years, saying there was a high risk of him re-offending.

Chrisco told police shortly after his arrest that he had spied on women in toilets across the US and Europe, she added.

Matt Connell, the fourth attorney to represent Chrisco in the 24 months since his arrest, argued that his client has been taking medication for his mental health issues, and is unlikely to receive proper help in prison.

"The acts that he committed were gross. They were disgusting. They were repulsive. I understand that, but he was in a delusional state of mind. He was psychotic. He was hallucinating," Mr Connell said.

"He's sick in a sad and pathetic way and he needs help, and that can best be delivered through probation."
