MARSHFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - A Marshfield man is free on a signature bond, after he appeared in court Monday morning for allegedly making cellphone videos of girls changing clothes at a hotel where he used to work.
29-year-old Joseph Wright was bound over for further proceedings on a felony charge of capturing nude images, and a misdemeanor of invading privacy by surveillance. Officials say other charges are possible.
Wood County prosecutors said Wright placed a recording cellphone on the bathroom floor at Marshfield’s Comfort Inn on October 7th. He reportedly tried to claim that his phone was missing – but investigators said the video captured Wright placing the device in a girls’ bathroom.
Officials said a girl found the device, saw that it was apparently running, and called authorities.
