A Smicksburg man will be sentenced today for his guilty plea to a single felony count of child pornography.
46-year-old Walter Charles Bowser was fired from his job at DC Sales in Dixonville last January after his cellphone was found in a restroom, recording people who were using the facility. Police obtained a search warrant for the phone and found numerous images, Bowser told investigators that he set up the phone in the bathroom to try to record the conversation of a fellow employee who was “badmouthing” him, but further analysis of the phone found videos of a woman undressing to take a shower in a residence and another video of a teenage girl undressing to shower as well. Police identified the girl and confirmed that she was 15 years old.
Bowser pleaded guilty in June. Ten felony counts, five misdemeanors, and a summary offense were withdrawn. His sentencing is scheduled before Judge Wiliam Martin at 8:30 AM.
