Central Pa. man who shot secret bathroom videos of 15-year-old girl denied break on prison term

A central Pennsylvania man who secretly shot nude bathroom videos of a teenage girl will be staying in prison after a state appeals court panel denied his appeal of his multiple child-sex convictions.

In an opinion by Senior Judge John L. Musmanno, the Superior Court rejected James A. Doll’s argument that police shouldn’t have been allowed to use the computer-based evidence they amassed against him.

Doll, 45, of Greencastle, claimed his computers were off-limits as evidence because his wife had no authority to give investigators permission to seize and search the devices for child pornography. He also insisted the search warrants police used to seize his computers weren’t sufficiently specific.

On those computers, police said they found child pornography, including videos Doll had secretly filmed of his accuser when she was 15.

Doll came under investigation in 2017 after the girl reported he had touched her inappropriately and had tried to coax her into watching pornography with him that involved “girls who appeared to be very young,” Musmanno noted.

Doll pleaded guilty to charges including possession of child porn, aggravated indecent assault of a minor, illegal intercept of communications and corruption of minors last October. A Franklin County judge sentenced him to 14 to 61 years in prison in December.
