Alleged 'peeping Tom' out on bail
A 28-year-old St Elizabeth farmer who is accused of making a video of a couple in bed and then posting it to social media was on Tuesday offered bail when he appeared in the St Elizabeth Parish Court.
Jason Honeyghan, who is also a car-tinting specialist of Cornwall District in Lacovia and who is charged with breaches of the Cybercrimes Act, burgulary and malicious destruction of property, was offered bail in the sum of $300,000 with surety.
As a condition of his bail, he is required to surrender his travel documents and report to the Lacovia police every Saturday, and stop orders have been placed at all ports of exist.
Honeyghan is accused of posting a video of a couple laying naked in their bedroom on social media.
In court yesterday, the presiding parish judge ordered that the case file be presented in court after the court heard that the file was submitted to the police registry in the parish.
The attorney representing Honeyghan, Thomas Levene, lashed out in court over the tardiness of the police registry in turning over the case files on a timely basis.
He stated that his client was taken into custody last Friday and charged, however, the file was still at the police registry at the Black River Police Station.
The court was told that Honeyghan, who is the ex-lover of the female, went to her home at about 1 a.m. on July 8 and proceed to force open a window and use his cellular telephone to video the woman and her male companion, who were asleep.
He then placed the video on social media, where it went viral. The matter was reported to the Maggotty police. The police's Scene of Crime Unit took photographs of the damaged window.
Following intensive investigations, warrants were prepared for Honeyghan's arrest.
Following his arrest, all cellular phones in his possession were seized and sent to the cybercrimes unit to be examined.
Honeyghan is scheduled to return to court on October 4, while the investigating officer was instructed by the court to have the case file completed.
