A Shelby County man is set to appear in court next month on charges he photographed a naked female in her bathroom. 27-year old Daniel David Pauley, of Defiance, was charged with invasion of privacy, after he allegedly took the picture through a screen window on the back of a home, while the woman was nude in her bathroom. A complaint filed against Pauley says the victim did not give him consent to photograph her, and the bathroom was not viewable from any public right of ways. The offense allegedly took place on August 14th. Pauley has entered a written plea of not guilty to the charge.

A pre-trial hearing in the case was scheduled for November 28th, with trial set for December 20th. If convicted on the serious misdemeanor charge, he faces up to a year in jail with an additional fine totaling $1,500.

Pauley faces an additional trial on February 14th, 2012, on a 3rd Degree Harassment charge and for Violation of a No Contact or Protective Order, associated with the August 14th incident. He’s plead not guilty to both charges.
