Microsoft vendor accused of taking upskirt photos placed on home monitoring

A King County judge has agreed to release Leonard David Raymundo, a Microsoft vendor employee accused of filming upskirt videos of some 93 different women, to electronic home monitoring, pending his arraignment.

Raymundo was charged March 28 with two counts of voyeurism. He has no criminal history but a King County prosecutor noted in charging documents that Raymundo’s “actions of filming unsuspecting females were prolific” and that “there were 86 video images recovered with 93 different unidentified female victims on the videos.”

Today, a King County Superior Court judge agreed to release Raymundo from King County Jail on condition that he be placed on electronic home monitoring and that he not use the Internet except as approved by his sexual deviancy treatment provider.

Raymundo was caught after another vendor employee walking on Microsoft’s Redmond campus found a video camera lying on a footpath, saw that the camera included upskirt videos, and reported the incident to Microsoft security.

In reviewing surveillance video of the pathway where the video camera was found, security officers saw footage of a woman exiting a campus building with a man walking right behind her. A short time later, the same man was caught on camera rushing back toward the building appearing “nervous, frantically looking around,” according to court documents. The man then used his key card to enter the building; Microsoft security used the key card log to identify the man as Raymundo, the court document says.

Raymundo admitted to a Microsoft investigator and a human resources employee that he had taken upskirt images on the Microsoft campus, and a subsequent examination by Redmond policeĀ of his assigned Microsoft laptopĀ showed that Raymundo had visited voyeurism-themed websites, according to court documents.

Raymundo has since taken part in a sexual deviancy treatment program.

He is scheduled to be arraigned on April 22.
