Douglas County prosecutors have filed five misdemeanor eavesdropping charges against a 23-year-old Shawnee man who is accused of peeking in the shower of women in Kansas University residence halls last spring.
Devin Joseph Mason turned himself in at Douglas County Jail on Friday morning and posted $500 bond, one day after he appeared in district court on a summons for the five charges.
Mason pleaded not guilty to the five counts Thursday.
KU Public Safety officers last April asked for the public’s help in the case after receiving multiple reports of a suspect who was opening shower curtains and looking in on female KU students, including in Hashinger and McCollum halls on Daisy Hill, near 15th and Iowa streets.
District Attorney Charles Branson confirmed the charges, which were filed July 14, are related to the incidents in the residence halls.
Police also in April released surveillance photos of a man described as a person of interest in the case. During the incidents no physical injuries were reported, KU police had said.
Mason is scheduled to next appear for a trial setting in front of District Judge Peggy Kittel on Sept. 13.
