Court Appearance For Man Accused Of Videotaping Neighbors

The man accused of setting up an elaborate hidden video system so he could spy on people inside a home appeared in court Monday to answer to a video voyeurism charge.

Police arrested the Morehead State University employee last week, after the couple living in the home found the camera.

54-year-old David Cox stood before a judge Monday morning, facing felony video voyeurism charges. An automatic not guilty plea was entered by his lawyer.

Police say the Morehead State University staff member set up a video camera to spy on people inside a home without them knowing.

According to investigators, the video camera was discovered in the bedroom of the home. Police say Cox befriended the people who live in the home and installed the camera after gaining their trust.

During Monday's court proceedings, Cox never said a word. His lawyer asked the judge for a preliminary hearing. He'll be back in court on May 7.

    Wow Anonymous from Frankfort; you sound like you have experience in voyeurism. I guess he was just too stupid which would be the reason he got caught.

    In the story on television, it was reported that the receiver for the camera was found in HIS house and was connected to a recorded device (VCR). That's why I said HE did it. Sure, innocent until proven guilty, but when you are caught red handed..come on! I guess someone else hooked the receiver to HIS VCR????

    Sheesh from Lexington - he's just been charged - not convicted. This is still America, thank God.

    If he indeed put it there, WHY would he place it in a closet in the bedroom--where there's a door according to footage shot by news camera crews--when he could have placed it in the bathroom in a vent or somewhere else less conspicuous?

    If the camera was there someone placed it there and whoever did it is sick.
