A senior vice president with Omaha-based Election Systems & Software Inc. has pleaded no contest in Dodge County Court to attempting to make a video of a young girl while she was undressing.
According to an arrest warrant filed in Dodge County, John Groh, 63, of North Bend, Neb., placed a video camera in a bathroom on July 7 that recorded an 11-year-old girl as she was preparing to shower. The girl found the camera, viewed the footage of herself and reported it to her older sister and mother.
Sgt. M.C. Ough of the Dodge County Sheriff's Office said Groh's wife turned the camera over to authorities. Groh fled from the state but was arrested Sept. 28 in Florida.
Groh, who is free on bail, faces a sentence of up to one year in prison and a $1,000 fine on a misdemeanor charge of attempting an unlawful intrusion.
Election Systems & Software Inc. said Wednesday that Groh has taken a leave of absence.
