Whitt Pleads Guilty To More Peeping Charges

Posted May 9, 2002

— John Thomas Whitt spent another day in court Thursday and pleaded guilty to more counts of peeping at students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Whitt pleaded guilty Thursday to 25 separate counts of peeping and eavesdropping. However, he will not spend any additional time in jail.

On Wednedsay, he was convicted of two peeping charges in the same Orange County courtroom.

John Whitt left the Orange County Courthouse Wednesday afternoon in handcuffs. It took jurors 30 minutes to find him guilty of both counts of secret peeping.

Whitt videotaped students at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill in various states of undress.

Whitt will also have to undergo psychiatric treatment.

In April, Whitt was found guilty of eight counts of secretly videotaping women in their dorms at N.C. State University. Whitt has been banned from all college campuses across the state.

He still faces additional peeping charges in Durham County.
