— A 17-year-old faces charges of peeping and sexually touching an underage girl.

Kendrick James Sheppard Jr., of 2804 Roundleaf Court, was arrested and charged Saturday with three counts of first degree sexual offense, three counts of secret peeping and two counts of possessing photographic image from peeping.

Sheppard is accused of using his cell phone to record women in their bathrooms by filming under the bathroom door, according to arrest warrants. He is also accused of sexually touching one of the victims and exposing himself, warrants said. Sheppard knew the victims before the offenses were committed, police said.

Sheppard remained in the Wake County jail Sunday on a $1.55 million bond.

    It's all they got. When you believe you are a victim you will stay a victim

    Guess you missed the part where the "...three counts of first degree sexual offense..." were with an UNDERAGE girl.

    IMO, that touchning an UNDERAGED child alone should warrant a $1M bond for ANYONE, but why the amount above that???

    While what he did is reprehensible, murderers have received less bond, including child murderers. smh
    Prayers for his victims, but c'mon on that high a bond.

    "what's wrong with that picture????"

    He must have had prior charges that we're not hearing about. Since he's still a minor, those records could have been sealed. There is definitely more to this story that we are hearing about.

    Did people even bother reading the article? He did MORE than take pictures. He inappropriately touched underage girls.

    Big difference. BIG.

    White kid peeped.

    This kid inappropriately TOUCHED underage girls.

    Sorry, but this is different. Don't even TRY to play the race card here. It does not apply, as it rarely does.

    Peeping and touching an underage girl are two different things. Also exposing himself. The color is not an issue.
