Former Microsoft contractor charged with felony voyeurism


Perhaps the sickest and most disgusting thing I've read all month.

A Microsoft worker has been charged with two counts of voyeurism on allegations that he captured 86 upskirt videos of 93 victimized women over the course of a year on the Microsoft campus.

Police say that Leonard Raymundo, a 34-year-old Microsoft vendor employee, used a video camera to secretly film "female victim’s buttocks, groin area or underwear," and "appeared to plan ahead and selected his filming locations carefully to ensure an abundance of potential victims."

Mod note: For more context on this story see this article at ArsTechnica, or read the comment below. I've changed the title to better reflect the actual facts of this situation. The following appears in the comments below:

I had to look into this just to get facts to determine whether or not there was a "story" here, and it seems there is.

For more context on this story, Microsoft Global Security actually had a part to play in this incident according to ArsTechnica.

The vendor employee (who found the camera on campus) reported the incident to Microsoft Global Security, who took possession of the camera on July 26. To find the camera's owner, two Global Security investigators pulled up Microsoft's internal security camera footage covering the RedWest footpath. They began by locating the moment when the vendor employee walked into the frame, paused, and bent down to retrieve the camera off the ground. Investigators then rewound the footage to see who had dropped it.

After this Microsoft handed the investigation over to local police in Redmond after they had determined that the contractor had used hardware assigned to him by Microsoft to browse NSFW sites, as well as upload his own footage of employees on site. Microsoft immediately did the right thing here, when another contractor discovered the camera they quickly moved to put the evidence into the hands of the legal authorities.

That's where the Microsoft side of this ends. Former contractor turns out to be a bad dude, and is now unemployed by said company.
