No hard drive, no sex neither

But ample lies and hidden video camera convict Border Patrol supervisor

Supervisory Border Patrol agent Armando Gonzalez pleaded guilty in federal court today (May 14) to video voyeurism and lying to cover up the crime. He admitted to placing a hidden camera in the floor drain of the women's restroom at the Chula Vista Border Patrol station.

Armando Gonzalez

The camera captured images of private parts of female employees at the station. Gonzalez also admitted that when Border Patrol officials confronted him about the camera, he lied to cover up his activities. He claimed he had placed the camera in the bathroom to conduct a drug investigation. He also destroyed or discarded the hard drive from the computer that he used to edit the videos.

Gonzalez, who lives in El Cajon, will be sentenced August 17 at 9 a.m. before U.S. District judge Roger Benitez. Gonzalez could get five years for making false statements, and one year for each of the seven counts against him for video voyeurism.

What a creep.

Felony stupid isn't, unfortunately, a crime. Losing his sweet federal job and going to jail for something like this is nuts. What are the chances he's actually sentenced to some serious hard time? Very low, I'd say, unless the Border Patrol wants to make an example of him. If that's the case, which is OK by me, then he's headed to some fed lockup of the medium-security sort. But then once he's just another prisoner, how will the other cons treat him? Not well, I'd suppose.

Visduh: Good point. If he goes to a fed prison, he could get roughed up by other prisoners. The word of his crime will get around inside the prison. Best, Don Bauder

they way things seem to work, he will probably get his lawyer to say his actions was caused by stress from the job, and end up with probation and disability income.

Murphyjunk: Even in California, the job stress alibi won't get him off the hook, I suspect. But then again... Best, Don Bauder

The Great Taboo in Sin Diego is the stuff that goes on in "male" pubic facilities--ALL public facilities. Power attracts goon personalities as well as pious and truly heroic ones. The latter are victimized by the former.

May 15, 2015

Twister: Maybe law enforcement should patrol those male public facilities more than it now does. Best, Don Bauder

May 16, 2015

I allows as how that's no longer allowed. You missed the pun in the previous post too.

Brandon Gaubert: Really? Best, Don Bauder
