Lawyer secretly recorded coworker use bathroom, TX cops say

Months after a Texas woman found a hidden phone recording her going to the bathroom, deputies have arrested and charged a suspect: her coworker.

Houston attorney Landon Keating, 30, is charged with five counts of invasive visual recordings, Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman announced Tuesday in a Facebook post.

In early June, deputies were called after a female coworker of Keating’s discovered a cell phone hidden in her private restroom. On it, she found many photos and videos of herself going to the bathroom.

She told investigators the phone was Keating’s.

The constable’s High Tech Crimes Unit got a warrant to search the phone and carried out an “in-depth investigation,” according to the Facebook post..

“As a result of this investigation several hundred video and image files of the complainant using her own office bathroom were discovered,” the post stated.

Keating has been arrested, booked, and is being held at Harris County Jail, according to the post. His bail is set at $25,000. Each count of invasive visual recording carries a max sentence of two years behind bars, and a possible $10,000 fine.

Melania Trump Was Secretly Recorded Discussing Her Role As First Lady

There’s long been speculation about where First Lady Melania Trump’s allegiances lie. During the last four years, she’s mostly kept quiet, other than an ill-advised “Be Best” initiative to combat cyberbullying and trip to an immigrant children’s shelter on the Texas/Mexico border where she wore a jacket that read, “I really don’t care. Do U?” on the back.

On Thursday, new insight into her behind-the-scenes beliefs emerged with the release of audio secretly recorded by her former aide and friend, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff. Wolkoff left the White House in 2018 after it was revealed her firm reportedly made $26 million off the planning of Trump’s inauguration, per the New York Times. In the summer of 2018, after Wolkoff had exited her East Wing role, she secretly taped Trump expressing disillusionment with several aspects of her life at the White House. “They say I’m complicit. I’m the same like him, I support him. I don’t say enough I don’t do enough where I am,” Trump said of criticism she received due to her husband’s separation of migrant children at the border. The First Lady added, “I’m working my ass off on the Christmas stuff, that you know, who gives a fuck about the Christmas stuff and decorations? But I need to do it, right?”

When Wolkoff confirmed she would have to carry out her yuletide duties, Trump continued, “Okay, and then I do it and I say that I’m working on Christmas and planning for the Christmas and they said, ‘Oh, what about the children that they were separated?’ Give me a fucking break.
