“It showed Dalton setting up his phone, hiding it under the toilet in the bathroom, putting items around it to conceal the camera and phone,” the affidavit says. “He then leaves the bathroom and the juvenile female comes in.”
At the end of the video, Dalton allegedly can be seen removing the phone, the affidavit says.
“It did not appear by the video the juvenile female had any idea he was videotaping her,” the court record says.
After showing Konat the video, Melchi said Konat allegedly told him that he has a problem.
“The (mother) was brought in at the end of the interview to talk to him and he just continued saying he was sorry,” the affidavit says.
