Voyeurism case involving former USU student headed for trial

LOGAN — The case for a 22-year-old former Utah State University student and fraternity member accused of voyeurism will go to trial in February, after attorneys said they failed to reach a resolution.

Griffin Ford appeared in 1st District Court Monday morning for a final pretrial conference. He is charged with one count of voyeurism by electronic device, a class A misdemeanor.

Police report Ford allegedly recorded himself and another student having sex at the Pi Kappa Alpha frat house. The video was taken, using his cell phone and later saved to his laptop. It is alleged that he later showed the video to several of his friends while at a bar.

The victim called police in April after finding the video, while borrowing the laptop.

Ford’s attorney, Gerald Salcido, has claimed that the victim knew she was being recorded.

According to Ford’s Facebook page, he transferred from USU and is now attending the University of Utah. He is a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity and is originally from Murfreesboro Tennessee.
