All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
(Lander, WY) – Lander resident Dudley Irvine pled “not guilty” to a charge of attempted voyeurism at his September 28th arraignment hearing.
It was reported back in June that the Fremont County Attorney’s Office had filed a charge against the former gym owner for allegedly video recording women without their knowing.
Initially, Irvine faced a charge for “voyeurism…On or between April 8th, through June 16th,” but court documents indicate the charge was amended to “attempted voyeurism…On or about April 8th,” while the case was processed in Circuit Court.
County 10 has not been able to confirm the reasoning behind the change as of this writing.
The charge was originally filed after a gym member reported to the Lander Police Department that she had found a “covert recording device that was plugged into an electrical outlet facing the shower within the women’s locker room.”
During a non-custodial interview of Irvine later conducted at his residence, he reportedly “admitted to installing this covert video recording device with the intent of capturing videos of ‘women when they got out of the shower.’”
A jury trial date will be set once the case management order has been reviewed.
The maximum sentence for an attempted voyeurism charge is five years imprisonment and a $5,000 fine.
County 10 will provide updates on the case as they become available, which can be found here.
