KCK officer resigns after guilty plea

June 23, 2007


— A police officer caught filming under a teenage girl's skirt at a St. Patrick's Day Parade resigned Friday, the Kansas City, Kan., Police Department announced.

Victor D. Waller, 45, pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct Wednesday. He was sentenced to two years' probation and must attend 12 counseling sessions and pay a $100 fine as part of a deal with prosecutors.

If he does not complete the counseling or breaks probation, Waller will have to serve 90 days in jail, city prosecutor Lowell Gard said.

At the parade in Kansas City, Mo., Waller was seen filming a 15-year-old with a camcorder. The camera was confiscated by police, who said the video consisted mostly of shots of girls ages 12 to 15, shown from the waist down wearing leotards or skirts.

Waller had been suspended by the police department following the incident.
