A Revelstoke man charged with two counts of voyeurism made his first appearance in Revelstoke Provincial Court on Wednesday, Feb. 6.

A Revelstoke man charged with two counts of voyeurism made his first appearance in Revelstoke Provincial Court on Wednesday, Feb. 6.

The first charge dates to Dec. 3, 2012, when the man is alleged to have observed a female in a place where she could have reasonably expected to be nude.

The second charge dates to Jan. 5, 2013, when the man is alleged to have recorded people on his cell phone inside the family change room at the Revelstoke Aquatic Centre.

According to reports, a staff member observed a man sliding a cell phone under a change room door. The employee detained the man and the RCMP was contacted.

The man’s computer was seized and searched during the investigation however Revelstoke RCMP spokesperson Staff-Sgt. Jacquie Olsen told the Times Review no further charges are pending.

Aaron John Winger, 38, is charged with two counts of secretly observing/recording nudity in a private place.

He has been released on bail with conditions that he is not allowed to use any cameras or video recording devices and can only use cell phones for work or in the company of a designated person.

The case was adjourned until Wednesday, Mar. 6, for an arraignment hearing, where he is expected to enter a plea.

The charge comes with a maximum sentence of five years.

The incident prompted the aquatic centre to make security changes and install sweeps under the doors in the family change room to make it impossible for someone to slide a phone under them.

Winger was a volunteer coach at the Revelstoke Acrobats Club but he left the club after he was arrested.

Olsen said the charges do not involve children. “There is nothing that we have that points toward children,” she told the Times Review.
