Ex-Los Alamos Fire Captain Sentenced in Video Voyeur Case

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — 36-year-old pleads no contest to videotaping female firefighter as she showered.

Former Los Alamos fire captain Aaron Adair pleaded no contest Tuesday to voyeurism and tampering with evidence for videotaping a female firefighter as she showered at a fire station in October and was sentenced to 364 days of supervised probation, the Los Alamos Monitor reported.

The charges involved a 27-year-old firefighter who discovered that she had been videotaped in the bathroom of Fire Station No. 3 in White Rock by a camera Adair hid in an automatic towel dispenser, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican.

“Upon successful completion of his conditional discharge, the charges will be dismissed,” Magistrate Judge Pat Casados said. “However, if he fails to complete those conditions, he could face imposition of jail time.”

The sentence included 364 days of supervised probation, a $25 monthly probation fee, 100 hours of community service to be completed within six months, no contact with the victim and continuation of the occupation and personal counseling in which he enrolled since his arrest, the Monitor said.

“For successful completion of his conditional discharge, I also ordered Mr. Adair to write a letter of apology, which needs to be approved by the court, to the victim, the Los Alamos Fire Department and the community of Los Alamos, and I told him I want that letter published in the Los Alamos Monitor, and he must pay the cost if there is one,” Casados said.

Adair had worked for the Los Alamos Fire Department for 11 years before he resigned last month, according to the Monitor.
