Editor's Note: Jon Caldwell was convicted of three counts of 3rd degree sexual exploitation of a minor. He was required to register as a sex offender upon release from prison. Caldwell served about 14 months behind bars.

A Wake County grand jury on Monday indicted a man on more than a dozen charges stemming from accusations that he secretly recorded a woman inside her Raleigh home.

Jon Carty Caldwell, 41, of 12505 Richmond Run Drive, faces 11 counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and one count each of cyber stalking, violating a domestic violence protective order and installing/using a photo device in a room and possessing photographic images from peeping.

Police arrested Caldwell Dec. 31 after his alleged victim said she found him in her master bathroom removing a camera from a ventilation system and then admitted to placing it in several other locations in the home.

Search warrants allege he then threatened to share the images he had taken. The sexual exploitation charges, which are unrelated to the peeping case, stem from photos that police say he had of young children.

Caldwell was in the Wake County jail Tuesday under a $200,000 secured bond.

    This will be an interesting case to follow. I take it that placing surveillance cameras in your own home while under a restraining order is illegal according to the arrest report.
