John Boyd Jail Intake Booking
Jacksonville Beach, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- John Thomas Boyd Jr, a 55-year-old Florida man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly used a hidden camera to record naked video clips of an underage female.
Jacksonville Beach police arrested Boyd after his wife reportedly discovered nude video clips of a female juvenile on his computer and contacted authorities.
Investigators say Boyd purchased an "over the counter nanny cam" which was hidden inside a clock radio. He then allegedly placed the device inside a bathroom which captured images of the the victim while she was nude.
Detectives also seized Boyd's computer which contained more than 60 video clips, according to Sgt. Tom Bingham of the Jacksonville Beach Police Department.
Boyd was booked into the Duval County Jail on one count of video voyeurism. His bond was set at $50,000.
A pre-trial hearing has been set up for Thursday at 9 a.m.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
We can't thank this woman enough. She did the right thing, not necessarily the easy thing. She could have just confronted him in private over it, but she didn't. She knew this situation had to be stopped completely and immediately.
Wife, we just want you to know we appreciate your courage. Thank you for looking out for this girl's dignity - no matter the price. Thank You!
