A Marin County lawyer was arrested on allegations he planted a camera in a bathroom during a teen graduation party.
Charles Gideon Korrell, 44, of Ross is free on bail pending a review by prosecutors. He declined to comment on the allegations on Friday.
The party occurred on Wednesday in Petaluma, and Korrell was a guest, police said. During the party, someone found a GoPro camera hidden in a cat litter box in the bathroom.
The camera had been recording for approximately 30 minutes before it was discovered, according to the Petaluma Police Department.
Police were summoned to the home, and no one admitted to owning the camera. Police seized the camera for further investigation and found footage of Korrell placing it in the litter box, the department said.
Investigators obtained an arrest warrant, arrested Korrell in Corte Madera on Thursday and executed a search warrant at his home. Detectives seized more potential evidence for examination.
Police booked Korrell into the Marin County Jail on a misdemeanor electronic peeping count. His bail amount was $15,000.
Korrell listed his occupation as lawyer when he was booked. He has been licensed in California since 2012, according to the state bar’s website.
