An Okmulgee County, OK., judge has sentenced Randy Kelley to 10 years in prison for secretly recording women. Kelley was arrested in 2016 after he put hidden cameras in tanning bed rooms at a gym.
Kelley entered a guilty plea May 26 to two counts of peeping tom with the use of photographic or electronic equipment, according to the Okmulgee County District Attorney’s Office.
The cameras recorded patrons who fully or partially disrobed in the tanning rooms, the DA’s office said. “Mr. Kelley made a conscious choice to take actions and place electronic devices in areas that people believed were secure and safe and private,” District Attorney Rob Barris said. “The images obtained of females in those areas victimized them and invaded their privacy and security. Those choices had consequences which Mr. Kelley must now face.” Continue reading

Novi, MI., police are saying the pool in which a father and his young son were found drowned has a depth ranging from only 3 to 5 feet. Residents of the The Glens of Northville apartment complex found the pair lifeless in the community area Tuesday. Cops say a tricycle was also found in the water.
The working theory is that the two came to the pool with no intention of going into the water. They wanted to play poolside but somehow the toddler fell into the water. His dad tried to save him but could not. However, that explanation still leaves lots of question unanswered.
“If anyone in the community happened to be in the pool area, or drove- or walked-by the pool today and saw a father and son playing by the pool, we want to talk to them, call Novi PD,” said Assistant Chief Jerrod Hart, Novi police.
