'He knows where we live, so it makes us uncomfortable'
SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - Chrystal Stutesman stands in the room where her 10-year-old daughter lived and was allegedly spied upon by her 63-year-old neighbor using hidden cameras tucked into the side of his house.
"Right under the edge of the siding, you can see two little holes," Stutesman said. "They're really hard to see but they're right in the shadow under the siding."
Her neighbor, Dana Bishop, faces numerous counts of invasion of privacy, all misdemeanors.
Stutesman has launched an effort seeking harsher penalties for invasion of privacy video voyeurism.
Bishop was released Tuesday from the Springfield Jail on several conditions. He can't live next to the Stutesman family, and he can't visit two local soccer fields where the girl practices.
"If he violates those rules," said Sgt. John Umenhofer, "then were going to be notified immediately of that, and we're going to take action on the violation of the release agreement."
Stutesman is still worried.
"We don't trust his decision making and the fact that he says he'll stay away," she told KVAL News. "We don't trust his word, and he knows where we live, so it makes us uncomfortable."
Bishop's trial is scheduled for May 15.
Stutesman said her family is in the process of moving out of their home in the Thurston area.
"We're definitely not going to be sleeping well for a while," she said, "and were going to be looking out for our daughter years from now because we won't know if he'll be interested or obsessed with her years from now."
Stutesman said that even though there are bail agreement rules that Bishop has to follow, she's not convinced her family is safe.
"To trust somebody who was arrested for the crime he's arrested for doesn't give us comfort," she said.
