Judge jails shoe camera peeper [John McCain 'friend'] for 2 years
The Daily Sentinal ^ | June 11, 2012 | Paul Shockley

A Grand Junction man who prosecutors said stalked random women at a grocery store and used a camera mounted on his shoe to surreptitiously film up their skirts, or while they used the toilet, was sentenced Monday to serve two years in the Mesa County Jail.

Joshua Cheyenne Vohs, 34, who was described by his own attorney as a “high-tech Peeping Tom,” received the maximum sentence available to a visibly angry Mesa County Court Judge Craig Henderson, who suggested a state prison sentence would have been more appropriate had the option been there.

“Short of actual penetration, this was a sexual assault,” Henderson said, calling the case among the most “vile and reprehensible” matters he’s presided over. The judge said he regretted he couldn’t order lifetime sex-offender supervision because of the non-felony plea in Vohs’ case.
.
.
Henderson cited Vohs’ prior arrest and conviction — a 2006 case in Crested Butte involving nearly identical circumstances — in rejecting probation. Vohs pleaded to a reduced crime, misdemeanor attempted invasion of privacy, and was sentenced to one year unsupervised probation after his arrest in January 2006 at a bar in Crested Butte.

An employee at The Eldo Brewery & Taproom phoned police after Vohs approached women, and he was later found with a similar video recording device strapped with duct tape on his foot, according to Mahre.

Vohs explained he was trying to film from a dog’s perspective while fishing, the prosecutor said.

On his MySpace page, this perv is a proud 'friend' of John McCain. I know, I know, doesn't mean this guy is out there helping John build the fence or assisting Meghan with her conservative talking points, but I still got a chuckle out of it.

The title is terribly misleadiong. It implies that he is an acquaintence of McCain when in fact, he is a social netrwork "friend".

We can't complain about the lack of integrity of the liberal MSM when our own engage in that type of deception.

The “[....]” brackets are used to insert commentary and are never part of the article or title. That, and I said as much in the post. There is no attempt to mislead here, I just thought it was funny to see McCains pic under this pervs “top friends”.

Not as bad as the guy who stationed himself inside the tank or an outhouse.

In the pilot HBO special, he used shoe mirrors.

Originally Pee Wee’s Playhouse was an adult comedy theater show.

One performance was taped for HBO in the 1980s and broadcast. Phil Hartman and others were in the cast.

It had adult overtones in the humor (shoe mirrors, hypnotizing a woman in the audience and getting her to strip). It pre-dated the CBS series.

Paul Rubens could also be spotted in Cheech and Chong movies at the time.

McCain isn’t even mentioned in the article. This is just another case of a FReeper inserting a half-wit mini-editorial into the title.

Just search the term "shoe camera" and you'll get a whole page full of items, including a web page dedicated to the no small number of men who have been caught using these things.

In addition, you'll find some Public Service Posters -



And one in Japanese -

You can accurately judge a person just by looking at their shoes, psychologists say.

How dare you besmirch Maxwell Smart and his shoe phone!

He couldn’t “see” anything. lol

But, I love the reference. It was one of my favorite shows. As a young teen, I was guilty of coveting Agent 99’s clothes.

I hope the end of year exams went well, and you have a wonderful, and restful, summer. ;o)
