Eavesdropping: Judge allows videotape as evidence in case Ottawa A videotape of the inside of a woman’s bathroom can be used as evidence in the eavesdropping case against a former bar co-owner, even though the tape was snatched from the suspect’s VCR at the request of a police officer, a judge has ruled. The attorney for Darrin A. Votaw, 31, Lawrence, had argued that the former girlfriend was acting as an agent of the government. Votaw, 31, of Lawrence, faces nine counts of eavesdropping. The woman, Kyla Rutter, testified that she found the unmarked tape Feb. 19 inside the VCR at Votaw’s apartment. Rutter said the tape showed women inside the women’s bathroom at G. Williker’s, a bar that was partially owned by Votaw. Rutter called a friend who was dating a Lawrence police officer, and the officer told Rutter to bring the tape to police. Franklin County Magistrate Judge Edwin Smith ruled Monday that Rutter was acting as a private citizen, not an agent of police. ___________________________________________ Recognition: Lawrence student named a Presidential Scholar Lawrence High School senior Benet Magnuson has been selected a Presidential Scholar by a commission of the U.S. Department of Education.
