Anthony Mahowald Wisconsin Court History
Eau Claire, Wisconsin (The Weekly Vice) - Anthony Mahowald, a 22-year-old Wisconsin man has been charged after he was caught repeatedly photographing nude women in dressing rooms. Child porn was found on his computer.
Prosecutors filed charges August 21 after he was allegedly caught several times taking photographs of unsuspecting women who were partially nude in bedrooms and dressing rooms.
Investigators say Mahowald first crossed their radar when an Eau Claire man walked outside to get his newspaper Feb 16 and saw a man peeking into the bathroom window of his home as his wife got ready for work.
Although the suspect jumped into a car and fled, the homeowner was able to get the vehicle's license plate number and call police. Police identified Mahowald and placed a GPS monitoring device on his vehicle.
Mahowald was then arrested April 29 after a female customer saw a man stick a camera phone underneath the dressing room door of a Lake Hallie Farm and Fleet retail store. Police found 32 photos on his camera phone including photographs of nude and partially nude women.
Police obtained a search warrant for Mahowald's residence which turned up additional photos and videos. A video camera was found containing videos of two women taking their clothing off in a bedroom. A search of Mahowald's computer revealed child pornography.
Mahowald now faces five counts of possession of child pornography, capturing an image of nudity without consent, two counts of invasion of privacy and attempting to capture a nudity image without consent.
A check of his Wisconsin CCAP record revealed Mahowald also has convictions for 4th-degree sexual assault and disorderly conduct.
