CFO charged with 123 counts of video voyeurism

TAMPA - The Chief Financial Officer at a Tampa business was arrested Friday and charged with 123 counts of video voyeurism.

Police say James Stanton, 39, of Trinity, used video recording equipment to capture 123 computer files that showed five victims using bathrooms and showers in the locker room of the business, MaintenX.

An IT employee discovered the files after he was asked to service Stanton's computer.

The employee, police say, provided the videos and information to management, but no action was taken. The employee then went to police.

Detectives say there are more than 200 videos dating back to 2010.  In some instances, the camera did not show the victims' faces.

Stanton is seen in some of the videos manipulating the camera after the women left the room. See video below.

Detectives served a search warrant at 9 a.m. Friday.  Stanton was arrested and taken to the Orient Road Jail.

His computer is being analyzed to determine if there are additional videos, other employees involved or victims.

Anyone with information is asked to contact TPD at 813-231-6130.
