Ick: Reston Man Sentenced to Six Years in Upskirt Filming

Solomon.jpgA Reston man charged with "upskirt" videotaping at Dulles Airport has been sentenced to six years in prison by a Loudoun County court.

“Upskirting” is an innocuous-sounding word for a very serious crime. That’s what a Reston man learned July 8 when he was sentenced to six years in prison for two counts of unlawful filming of another.

The employee of the bookstore at Dulles International Airport was charged after a man noticed him following his fiancee through the airport in a manner described as “uncomfortably close.” The man later noticed that he was carrying a messenger bag with an open front flap and a protruding video lens.

A search of his home uncovered numerous photographs and videos, several of which were deemed child pornography by investigators. Two of his “upskirting” targets were identified from 2008 airport surveillance.

This was not his first legal troubles stemming from unlawful filming. He was convicted for three similar incidents in 2006 and 2007 while a student at the University of Virginia. He was also convicted of stalking a female student during this period.

He was sentenced to six years in prison and 10 years of supervised release when his term is completed. He will also be appearing in Fairfax County Circuit Court on Sept. 9 for sentencing on a possession of child pornography charge.
Can't wait to see what search terms bring people to this post.

    Sounds like Mr. Pervy should have been working for TSA at Dulles. I bet he'd be a natural removing an adult diaper from a 94-year-old woman in a wheelchair.

    As part of the sentencing the judge should also have required Mr. Pervy to wear a kilt while in prison so he himself could be upskirted by Bubba.

  2. I can hear the warden making the introductions now. "Mr. Pervy, meet Bubba.

    "Bubba, this is Mr. Pervy. He's going to be your new cage plaything ...er ...I meant cellmate."
