LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –A Lawton man was charged Tuesday after his girlfriend said he recorded her daughter taking a bath.

Lawton police were called to the home just after 2 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 30, on a possible child pornography complaint. Officers spoke to a woman who said her boyfriend, Darious Rhodes, recorded her 11-year-old daughter taking a bath. Police say Rhodes used his phone to record the young girl. The 20-minute long video was secretly recorded from behind the toilet. A portion of the video showed a man wearing a white wrist band and gray sweatpants.

Rhodes was arrested and taken to the Lawton City Jail where he was booked on violation of the Computer Crimes Act. His phone, SD card and wristband were all placed on property at the station.

The detective working the case presented it to the Comanche County District Attorney’s Office and Rhodes was charged with being a peeping Tom while using photographic or electronic equipment; the maximum punishment is up to five years in prison and/or a $500 fine. Rhodes is being held on a $50,000 bond.
