LOGAN — A 35-year-old man has pleaded guilty to filming a woman while she changed clothes in a dressing room and will now wait to be sentenced.
Jordan M. Larsen appeared in 1st District Court Tuesday morning, accepting a plea deal from state attorneys. As part of the agreement, the Logan resident pleaded guilty to one count of voyeurism, a class A misdemeanor. In exchange for his plea, prosecutors dropped two similar charges against him.
Larsen was arrested November 16, accused of using his cell phone camera to record girls in the changing room of a dress store in the Cache Valley Mall, two-months ago. He was seen by store employees, placing the device above the door of the room. He ran from the mall when confronted.
Police later learned that Larson allegedly tried to record under women’s skirts at Utah State University, by placing a recording device on his foot. The incident was captured by security cameras in September.
Officers from both Logan City and USU had released several photos, asking for the public’s help identifying the suspect.
Larsen later turned himself in and was booked into the Cache County Jail, where he was being held on $5,000 bail.
During Tuesday’s hearing, public defender Shannon Demler asked the court to release Larsen until he is sentenced.
Judge Brian Cannell said he would grant release but under the conditions that Larsen be supervised by probation, have no smart phone or cell phone, and not be allowed to use the internet.
Larsen will be sentenced on January 10 and could face up to a year in jail.
