Raleigh police file sex offense charge against alleged Target peeper
Posted November 11, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — A man arrested last week in Raleigh for allegedly recording up a woman's skirt faces new charges, including a sex charge, in connection with a breaking-and-entering case.
Raleigh police on Tuesday charged Pierre Ulysses Coley, 26, with one felony count each of first-degree burglary and second-degree sexual offense in connection with the Oct. 31 break-in near North Carolina State University.
A 20-year-old woman was home at the time, according to an arrest warrant.
Coley was already in jail under a $15,000 bond since his arrest Nov. 5 on a felony charge of secret peeping.
His new bond on the three charges has been set at $215,000, and he's expected to be back in court Wednesday.
In the peeping case, which happened Oct. 12, police say he allegedly used his cellphone to record photos or video of a woman at Target on Old Wake Forest Road.
According to court records, Coley pleaded guilty last year to misdemeanor charges of secret peeping – a Wake County case from last year and a Nash County case in 2012 – and received 127 days in jail with credit for time served.
His name is not on North Carolina's sex offender registry, however, because a conviction on the charge does not automatically require it.
A 2004 law, however, does allow a judge to require a defendant to register after two or more peeping convictions.
