By on January 19, 2018 in Criminal Law

A former in-house lawyer, accused of secretly videotaping nude and partially clothed female employees at his Florida company, has consented to be disbarred, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

James Patrick Stanton, formerly in-house lawyer with a Florida maintenance company, was alleged to have videotaped women showering, using the toilet and changing clothes in restrooms. A former IT employee of the company reported that he found videos on Stanton’s laptop in 2010 and told executives, but nothing was done.

After the IT employee left the company he gave evidence to police. But later the charges were dismissed after Stanton’s lawyers argued that the statute of limitations had expired, explains reporter Susan Taylor Martin.
