Lawyer pleads guilty to spying on female colleagues [Clippings]


The AP reports,


A former Legal Aid Society lawyer pleaded guilty Wednesday to illegally using a hidden video camera to spy on female co-workers as they changed clothes in their offices.

Peter Barta, 32, of Queens, used a camera hidden in a clock to videotape five co-workers in the public defense agency's Manhattan offices, recording at least one woman with her breasts and buttocks bared.

The women told police they regularly changed clothes in their offices before and after work. . . .

Barta pled to a felony so he is automatically disbarred. Thank goodness.
