State v. Mr. T (DMC No. 14313)

State v. Mr. T (DMC No. 14313) – (7 Counts) Surreptitious Videotaping and (7 Counts) Felony Voyeurism – Not Charged – Scottsdale Police Department Investigated (DR No. 20XX-XXXXXX4).

Mr. T was married but had been going through a potential divorce situation with his wife when she discovered that he allegedly had been videotaping their sexual encounters on and off for over 4 months. She confronted Mr. T about this and allegedly recorded him making admissions to filming them without her knowledge. She also secured a thumb-drive with 7 different videos of them engaged in sexual intercourse. She then called the Scottsdale Police Department and filed an initial report. She then informed them that she did not want to move forward at that time, and she held off any further cooperation.

Approximately 4 years later after the divorce was finalized, they were going through a custody issue regarding where their son should go to school. She then reactivated her prosecution with Scottsdale PD. As the investigation began moving forward again, she called the Scottsdale Police Detective back. She stated that she and Mr. T were “having a disagreement over which school their son should attend and that she did not want it to appear to the court that she was only reporting in hopes for the decision to be in her favor.” She wanted to wait until after the Judge made his custody decision before proceeding forward with charges.

The Police then contacted Mr. T and he told them that he was “in the middle of a custody battle” and that he did not think he should talk to them. He told the Officer to contact his lawyer. We then became involved and informed the Officer that this was all being generated for custody battle purposes. We also pointed out that it was not definitive in the videos that this was not a consensual taping between this married couple. Even though Mr. T’s ex-wife claimed that she had him making admissions on tape, it wasn’t clear that it was admissions of him filming her unknowingly. Ultimately, no charges were ever brought against Mr. T.
