Madison voyeur case finished
Star Beacon

MADISON TOWNSHIP - - The secret acts of a Madison Township voyeur have been exposed, investigated, tried and punished.

As of March 15, Andrew M. Jacob, 45, North State Street, Painesville, will finally pay for months of voyeuristic behavior, which took place at his Madison mobile home in 2005.
Madison Township Police Department was first notified of Jacob's fetish on Nov. 27, 2005 when officers were called to his then Paradise Drive residence for a domestic dispute.
A guest of Jacob and his wife discovered a camera in a bathroom wall vent. They summoned police to investigate.

Sgt. Matt Byers and Officer Matt Gosnik arrived and conducted a search of the residence. They confiscated 13 videotapes, which they had to view.

"We found evidence that he was taping kids," Sgt. Tim Brown said. "After viewing the tapes, it was obvious he was filming from other locations than just the bathroom vent. We searched his residence and that's when we found he had the whole trailer rigged."

With the use of one camera, Jacob filmed subjects in one bedroom and two bathrooms, the sergeant said. Police found one camera location in the overflow valve of the bathtub. The bathroom vent initially reported, turned out to be bogus.

"He was filming everybody and anybody that used the bathrooms," Brown said, stating Jacob's victims include one male adult, two female adults, and three juveniles who would occasionally bathe at the residence.
"He was taping for quite a few months," Brown said.

The sergeant spent a couple months examining the evidence confiscated from Jacob's home, including the task of scanning innumerable pornographic videotapes and DVDs.
"The investigation took a long time," Brown said. "It was a long, drawn-out process."
Madison Township Police Department presented the case to the Lake County Prosecutor's Office and a secret indictment was handed down. Jacob turned himself in November 2006. His wife was not charged.
"He did give a confession that his wife didn't know anything about it," Brown said.
Assistant Lake County Prosecutor Michelle Baeppler was on the case.

"Michelle did a really good job with the case, she did a lot of research and put a lot of work into it on her end," Brown said.

Jacob was tried in Lake County Court of Common Pleas in front of Judge Eugene A. Lucci.
Jacob was sentenced to prison for a total of three consecutive years, Lucci said, adding that Jacob pled guilty to three charges: two charges of illegal use of minor in nudity-oriented material or performance, a third-degree felony, and one count of interception of wire, oral or electronic communication, a fourth-degree felony.
After release from prison, Jacob is required to be listed as a sexually oriented offender for the next 10 years, and must not live within 1,000 feet of a school.

Whistle "Assistant Lake County Prosecutor Michelle Baeppler was on the case.

"Michelle did a really good job with the case, she did a lot of research and put a lot of work into it on her end," Brown said."

I wonder if Michelle's end was filmed too? Sorry folks - my weird English sense of humour and an unfortunate putting together of words.

Seriously though, if the camera in the vent which triggered the search was bogus, I wonder how a bogus camera came to be reported? dontknow
