(Lander, WY) – Lander resident Dudley Irvine pled “no contest” to an attempted voyeurism felony charge at his Tuesday, February 23rd change of plea hearing, after filing a plea agreement on February 5th.
Irvine had originally pled “not guilty” back in September to the charge, which stemmed from an incident occurring during his time as the owner of a Lander fitness facility, when a gym member reported finding a “covert recording device that was plugged into an electrical outlet facing the shower within the women’s locker room.”
The hearing was overseen by the honorable Judge Marvin Tyler, who ultimately stated that he needs more information before deciding whether to accept the plea or not.
The plea agreement states that “Parties have not agreed to a specific sentence, and are free to argue any sentence they deem appropriate within the confines of the statutory maximums,” which in this case, is up to 5 years imprisonment and a $5,000 fine.
The agreement also states that “there will be no further charges filed” if agreed upon, and goes on to note that there was “no evidence that this charge involved minors” at the time the agreement was filed.
A sentencing hearing will be scheduled once Judge Tyler has had time to look into further information.
County 10 will provide more information on the case as it becomes available, which can be found here.
