A Leavenworth man has pleaded guilty to taking a video under a woman’s skirt at a local store, according to the county attorney.

Thomas E. Campbell, 55, entered the plea Wednesday in Leavenworth County District Court to one felony count of breach of privacy.

The charge stemmed from an Aug. 20 incident at the Wal-Mart store in Leavenworth, according to County Attorney Todd Thompson.

Wal-Mart personnel notified police officers that Campbell had been seen placing a phone under a woman’s skirt.

Campbell reportedly admitted to officers that he recorded a video lasting two or three seconds while the phone was under the woman’s skirt. When asked why he did it, Campbell replied that he just felt a need to do it, according to Thompson.

“We’re very fortunate that someone spoke up when this occurred,” Thompson said in a news release. “We need to always speak up when we someone is being victimized.”

Sentencing in the case is scheduled for Nov. 1.

Thompson said the sentence could range from probation to 21 months in prison.
