The former manager of a state fish hatchery near Shelton, Wash., will be sentenced for voyeurism after pleading guilty to the crime early last month.
At his arraignment in Mason County Superior Court last November, Edwin Carl Jouper had said he wasn’t guilty of setting up a camera in the women’s restroom at the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife’s George Adams Hatchery.
A female employee found and reported the poorly hidden, 3-inch-long device in early November.
The then-57-year-old was arrested at the hatchery after a weeklong investigation by WDFW officers and Mason County sheriff’s deputies led back to him.
Jouper resigned from WDFW soon afterwards; he had been with the agency since 1975, and had managed George Adams in recent years.
He will appear in court July 9 for sentencing. Voyeurism is a Class C felony.
Editor’s note: Sentencing was held off until July 16, according to the court.
