Alleged 'Peeping Tom' avoids trial, now heading to plea hearing
Demetrious Moll

A trial for an accused Peeping Tom has been cancelled, and instead, the case is set for a plea hearing next month.

Former Ripon College student Demetrious S. Moll, 20, was scheduled to face a jury trial last week. But now, he’s expected to enter a plea Wednesday, July 17, court records show.

Moll is accused of capturing showering images/video of at least four different women over time without their consent at Ripon College. In the criminal complaint, these women are known as A, B, C and D to protect their privacy.

According to the complaint, when confronted by police about these allegations, Moll eventually admitted it.

“Moll eventually indicated he did not take any pictures but [took] some videos,” it reads. “Moll stated he had taken videos a handful of times because he was under a lot of stress.”

Initially, prosecutors charged Moll with two felony counts of capturing an image of nudity without consent. That grew to 14 counts as the investigation progressed.
