HENRIETTA TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WJW)– A Lorain County man is facing a lengthy list of charges after authorities say he recorded a woman and teens in the bathroom of his home.
The Lorain County Sheriff’s Office said they began investigating Paul Churchill, 30, after a 19-year-old woman reported he had a hidden camera device in the bathroom of his Henrietta Township house. Detectives searched the device and found a large number of files, some involving juveniles.
Investigators later learned Churchill moved the camera to a friend’s home in Erie County, where he recorded another female victim, according to the sheriff’s office.
Churchill was indicted for:
- Four counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor.
- Three counts of illegal use of a minor or impaired persons in nudity-oriented material or performance.
- Five counts of voyeurism.
The sheriff’s office said the investigation is ongoing and additional charges will be presented to a grand jury. Charges are expected in the Erie County case.
Churchill is being held at the Lorain County Jail on $70,000 bond. He will be arraigned on Feb. 13.
