SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A former Sacramento real estate executive who was convicted in 2011 of secretly recording women using the restroom and shower at his home has been ordered to stop using cell phones or other electronic devices that are equipped with cameras.
The Sacramento Bee reports (http://bit.ly/1Hh019T ) that Superior Court Judge Ben Davidian imposed the no-camera rule on Friday as a condition of 59-year-old Michael Lyon's bail. Lyon, the former head of Lyon Real Estate who was once a prominent area philanthropist and Boy Scout troop leader, was jailed in October on probation violation charges after investigators allegedly found drugs and other video recording equipment in his home.
Defense lawyer William Portanova tells The Bee that his client has pursued photography as a hobby his entire life, so abiding by the bail term will be difficult for him.
