73-Year-Old Car Dealership Employee Gets Jail Time For Hiding Video Camera In Women’s Bathroom

WHITE LAKE TOWNSHIP (WWJ) – A White Lake man accused of hiding a camera in the women’s restroom of a car dealership where he worked has been sentenced to jail.

An Oakland County Circuit Judge on Tuesday sentenced Larry Flowers, 73, to eight months in jail and five years probation. Flowers, a former employee at Szott’s Chrsyler Jeep, pleaded guilty in January to six felony charges, including using a computer to commit a crime and capturing and distributing images of unclothed persons.

One of the victims told the court the incident caused her to have anxiety in restrooms and dressing rooms. Flowers apologized and admitted to having an addiction to pornography, The Oakland Press reported.

“I don’t know how I allowed myself this addiction or vice…I was getting ready to stop when I was discovered,” he said.

The small, wide-angle video camera was discovered Aug. 31, 2016 inside the women’s restroom at the dealership. After questioning Flowers, police reportedly found video of three women using the restroom on his computer.

  1. Thank you for posting this article. I had no idea it was wrong to place cameras in bathrooms at car dealerships. I hope the accused is treated with leniency as he is obviously repentant and unlikely to repeat this egregious indiscretion within the next few weeks. Victims are to be similarly forgiven for harboring long-term aversion to visiting public facilities in the western reaches of Oakland County where unruly farm animals still outnumber law enforcement personnel.
