Man, woman face 250 felonies in locker room video case
Pair allegedly conspired to capture nude images of people without consent
KENOSHA, Wis. — A man and woman face more than 250 felonies for allegedly putting cameras in southern Wisconsin locker rooms.
The Kenosha News reported that 28-year-old Melissa Wenckebach and 36-year-old Karl Landt were charged this spring with 37 counts of conspiring to capture an image of nudity without consent. Another 214 counts were added Thursday.
The investigation began in April, after Wenckebach was allegedly discovered with a camera in a Pleasant Prairie recreational facility locker room.
Court records said she confessed and police later recovered dozens of videos from devices at Landt’s home, leading to the new charges regarding cameras at Uline corporate headquarters.
Landt’s attorney had no comment Saturday and Wenckebach’s attorney Jonathan LaVoy said Landt had pressured his client and they hoped to eventually discuss a plea agreement with prosecutors.
