A Millwood man was arrested for sex crimes involving a minor under the age of 16 on Sept. 27 before later pleading not guilty during his arraignment on Oct. 2.

The charges stem from crimes allegedly committed by Jeremy C. Hall, 38, of Millwood, on Sept. 17.

According to his arrest warrant, Hall allegedly concealed a cell phone in the restroom of a residence with the camera of the cellphone recording while a juvenile undressed to take a shower, after which he then transferred the video to an external storage device.

In relation to the incident, Hall was charged with voyeurism, a class A misdemeanor; video voyeurism, a class D Felony; possession of/viewing matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor, a class D Felony; and promoting a sex performance by a minor under 16 years of age, a class B Felony.

If convicted on all charges, Hall could face up to 31 years in jail.

After his arrest, Hall was lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center on a $10,000/50-percent-cash bond. He is currently on house arrest and is to have no contact with the alleged victim or anyone else under the age of 18.

Kentucky Revised Statute 531.090 states that a person is guilty of voyeurism when he or she intentionally uses or causes the use of any camera, videotape, photooptical, photoelectric, or other image recording device for the purpose of observing, viewing, photographing, filming, or videotaping the sexual conduct, genitals, or nipple of the female breast of another person without that person's consent.

KRS 531.320 states that a person is guilty of promoting a sexual performance by a minor when, knowing the character and content thereof, he produces, directs or promotes any performance which includes sexual conduct by a minor. This is a class B felony if the minor is under 16 years of age.
