Prosecutors say a former GOP official and his girlfriend conspired to get a woman drunk and take nude photos of her using spy glasses and a webcam while she was passed out, reports Patch.com.
Bucks County detectives chared former Northampton Township supervisor, Jay Weinstein, and his girlfriend, Kelly A Drucker, with multiple felonies, including violations of the Pennsylvania Wiretap Act. They also are charged with false imprisonment, invasion of privacy, recklessly endangering another person and criminal conspiracy.
Text messages show the couple began plotting what they called their “mission” in October 2017, conspiring to spike their victim’s drink with high-proof alcohol as a ploy to get her back to Drucker’s house, where a webcam had been placed in the bathroom.
“Don’t let her go to the bathroom until she gets back to your place,” Weinstein appears to instruct Drucker in one message.
“Keep sober so you can make it happen and aren’t too drunk to win,” he texted, as his girlfriend had dinner with the woman at a Mexican restaurant.
The victim told investigators that she remembers the wine “didn’t taste right” and appears to have blacked out after that.
When the woman passed out in the bathroom, Weinstein instructed his girlfriend by text message to “get her naked and get [sic] door open.”
The Bucks County District Attorney’s office said Weinstein is also accused of indecent assault in a separate incident in which they say he sexually assaulted an unconscious woman in 2012.
The Republican official stepped down from Northampton, Pennsylvania’s board of supervisors last month.
The couple surrendered to police Tuesday afternoon.
