reporting that an Escondido attorney entered a guilty to a misdemeanor peeping tom charge relating to a secretly filming women at a tanning salon. Nice. This is the news account of the plea deal.
A North County defense attorney pleaded guilty Monday to misdemeanor charges stemming from his secret filming of women at an Escondido tanning salon last year. As part of his probationary sentence, David Taylor Kaye will be required to attend sex offender treatment and stay away from tanning salons and cannot possess pornography, said Deputy District Attorney Annette Irving.
Kaye, 43, pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts each of peeking through a private area and secretly filming another individual, the prosecutor said. Formal sentencing is set for Aug. 11.
Kaye was the subject of a 10-month investigation that started when he was seen secretly filming women in various stages of undress at a local tanning salon.
He was arrested on April 19, 2010, and charged with four misdemeanor counts of secretly filming a person, said Escondido police Lt. Craig Carter. Last July, Escondido police served a search warrant at Kaye's house and business and recovered additional evidence on Kaye's computers and phones that led to additional charges, the lieutenant said.
