VALPARAISO — A former Valparaiso University student has been sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to secretly filming male classmates showering and using the bathroom and posting the videos online.
A Porter County judge sentenced Joshua Baker III of Memphis, Tennessee, on Monday to one year of suspended prison time for each of the two counts of voyeurism he had pleaded guilty to in the case.
Baker, 22, will serve two years of probation and is required to attend counseling, The (Northwest Indiana) Times reported.
He was charged in April 2019 after one of the young men caught on video told police he was alerted by someone on Instagram that the videos were listed on a pornographic website under various versions of the name “Dorm Spy.”
According to court documents, one of the men filmed in showering contacted police and provided Baker’s identity after hunting it down using Facebook.
All the videos were shot in a dormitory at the Valparaiso campus' Wehrenberg Hall and were posted by someone using the same obscene screen name, police said.
The university issued a statement at the time saying campus police launched an investigation immediately after learning of the accusations. Baker was then banned from campus by university police.
