CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- A Chambersburg man charged with using a camera disguised as a clock to take pictures in the restroom of the office in which he worked pleaded guilty recently in Franklin County Court and was sentenced to a year on probation.
Andrew E. Gahagan, 33, entered the plea Feb. 6 before Judge Douglas Herman, attorney Eric Weisbrod said. In exchange for the plea, two other counts of invasion of privacy were dismissed, according to court records.
Gahagan came to the attention of police last summer when an employee at the Chambersburg-area business removed a clock from the back of the toilet in the restroom. The woman told police Gahagan wanted to know what happened to the clock and placed it back in the bathroom.
The woman later saw an episode of ABC's "Primetime" in which a woman used a digital camera disguised as a clock to catch someone entering her home, according to the affidavit of probable cause. The woman "immediately recognized the clock as being the same clock that is on the back of the toilet at her place of work," the affidavit stated.
