A lawyer in Olathe, Kan., has been dragged into criminal court on charges he rigged an iPhone app to take secret videos and pictures of three of his female employees.Jeremiah Johnson was arraigned last week on two misdemeanour charges stemming from accusations he encouraged his employees to wear “skirts and high heels” at the office and then took pictures under their skirts, The Kansas City Star reported at the time.

The case first made headlines late last year when Brooke Bashaw, Katie Sellers, and Lauren Spalsbury filed a lawsuit against Johnson.

The Kansas lawyer secretly recorded their legs and lower torsos “and allowed anyone viewing the recordings to see Plaintiffs’ legs and between their legs to the undergarments,” according to the suit. (complaint via Above The Law)

The three women are seeking $75,000 each for invasion of privacy and “outrage,” according to the suit.

Johnson pleaded not guilty to the recent criminal charges.

If convicted on the criminal counts, he faces disbarment and up to a year in jail and probation,  FOX 4 News reported.
