A Lancaster man has been sentenced to six years in jail for secretly recording women at restaurant bathrooms in Palmdale and Lancaster, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced today.
Jesus Calvario, 22, pleaded no contest yesterday to 18 misdemeanor counts: 14 counts of unauthorized invasion of privacy, three counts of unauthorized invasion of privacy of an identifiable person and one count of possession of methamphetamine.
Deputy District Attorney Yujin Yi said Calvario also was placed on three years of summary probation and ordered to complete one year of sexual compulsion control classes.
The prosecutor said Calvario went into a Denny's restaurant in Lancaster and a Mi Ranchito restaurant in Palmdale between Oct. 21 and Nov. 15, 2016, entered the women's restrooms and hid in the stalls. Calvario would then record women from the bathroom stall or leave a device behind secretly recording them, the prosecutor added.
During the same time period, the defendant also secretly recorded his girlfriend's mother.
Case 6AN06393 was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, Lancaster Station.
