According to al.com, an August 30 date has been set for the trial of a former Tennessee Valley Authority supervisor charged with video voyeurism.
Last October, prosecutors charged Lance Wade Woods, age 56, of Cypress Inn, TN, with video voyeurism, a law which prohibits capturing an image of a private area of an individual without their consent. The incident happened when the victim “had a reasonable expectation of privacy,” authorities said.
The incident allegedly took place on April 29, 2019, at a Colbert County, Alabama TVA facility, investigators said.
U.S. District Judge Liles Burke set the trial date for August 30, 2021, to be held at the John McKinley Federal Building in Florence, AL. Woods could face as much as a year in prison if convicted.
According to a civil suit, a woman says Woods installed a motion-activated, digital spy camera inside an air conditioning vent in a ladies’ bathroom in a field machine shop on TVA property in Muscle Shoals.
She said Woods also made suggestive comments to her on several occasions.
Court documents filed in Wayne County show that Woods has transferred property out of his name and into his wife’s name via a quit claim deed.
