Raleigh, N.C. — 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.
New charges were filed on Tuesday against a Raleigh man who was arrested in December for allegedly peeping on a woman he knew with a hidden camera placed in the master bathroom of the victim's home.
Jon Carty Caldwell, 41, was charged with four counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.
According to an arrest warrant, Caldwell had images on his computer of children between the ages of 8 and 13 engaging in sexual acts.
Caldwell was arrested in December and charged with one count each of installing/using a photo device in a room and possessing photographic images from peeping.
A search warrant, which was issued Dec. 17, 2013 for Caldwell's home and car, claims that the female victim found Caldwell Dec. 10 in the master bathroom of her home removing a small camera from the ventilation system.
Raleigh police say Caldwell knows the woman and that the crime was not random.
Caldwell was initially jailed under a $10,000 secured bond, but he was being held in the Wake County Detention Center Wednesday under a $200,000 bond on the new charges.
