Woman hopes lawmakers make voyeurism sex crime
Last Updated: 427 days ago
INDIANAPOLIS - A woman who was a victim of a man police are calling a serial peeping tom is on a mission to change Indiana law in hopes he will spend time in jail.
Kelly Stone was furious and frustrated to be in court again to face Adam Mittler, 33.
Investigators said Mittler took cell phone video of a woman from under a bathroom stall in a downtown hotel just two days after his parole ended following a previous voyeurism conviction.
Stone ran Mittler down and accosted him after he took pictures of her and others in dressing rooms at Castleton Square Mall in 2010.
Stone and prosecutors said they think there could be countless additional victims.
"Probably upwards of a hundred," Stone said. "I mean, you don't even know someone is taking pictures of you until you catch them."
"It’s very hard to tell in the fact that potentially some people may not have reported it," said Marion County Deputy Prosecutor Mary Ann Fleetwood.
Mittler is currently charged with voyeurism and resisting arrest. Charges against him were enhanced to a Class D felony.
RTV6 was the only TV station recording when Mittler left court.
"IMPD used more than excessive force, and I didn’t resist," he said. "I’m innocent."
Stone hopes people contact their legislators and join her fight against repeat voyeurs.
"I've already done this before. I’ve already spoken at this building. I’ve already testified against him," she said. "I'm here because I want this to change. Indiana needs to make voyeurism a sex crime."
Mittler’s bond was increased to $50,000. He is due to make another court appearance at a pretrial conference Oct. 22.
