Court documents obtained by KSBY Tuesday say former California State Parks employee, Jesse Nungaray, secretly made video recordings of people in bathrooms and at least one hotel room.
It happened a year ago while Nungaray was renovating public restrooms at state parks in Pismo Beach and Oceano.
The court documents don't spell out which park restrooms were involved; however, it does say Nungaray was working at the Oceano campgrounds in Pismo Beach State Park in early 2012.
The documents also say he was using cameras inside a hotel where he was staying, the Shore Cliff Lodge in Pismo Beach.
The documents say the case came to light when a housekeeper cleaning Nungaray's room at Shore Cliff Lodge found an electrical outlet that wasn't working. Later, hotel staff found cameras and recording devices that appeared to have been set up in the socket to record people in the room next door without them knowing.
Police, with a search warrant, later found videos apparently made in a public restroom showing people who seemed unaware that they were being filmed.
There was also another video clip from a residential bathroom showing children.
The court documents say Nungaray claimed he and his wife shot the video inside the residential bathroom because they wanted to find out if their son was using illegal drugs.
Nungaray has no prior history of sexual offenses.
In July 2012, he entered a plea of no contest to two counts of invasion of privacy. Three other counts, including a felony eavesdropping charge, were dismissed.
According to a report from a CBS station in Sacramento, Nungaray's victims have not been made aware they were videotaped.
