Ex-Cop Caught Videotaping a Naked Woman in Her Home
According to authorities former police officer Brett Robison of the Gainesville Police Department in Florida was caught secretly recording a young woman as she undressed in the privacy of her home.
Prosecutors say he would drive up in his patrol car and videotape unsuspecting women through their windows, while he was supposed to be on patrol.
Allison Zittel is one of his victims. She gave INSIDE EDITION permission to show the video he recorded because she wants others to know what happened to her. She had no idea that she was being videotaped until investigators showed her the video.
"He took innocent girls and took something away which we have as a right, which is our privacy," Zittel told INSIDE EDITION.
"I'm watching myself naked in my room just doing the normal everyday things a girl does," said Zittel. "I had my towel wrapped up on my head, I was in my underwear, and I could hear him breathing."
Cops say Officer Robison filmed Zittel outside of her home. He followed her every move from the living room to her bedroom. "He would follow me window-to-window and it was just the most creepy, terrifying thing to even witness," she said.
Authorities say Zittel wasn't his only victim. Police say Robison filmed in excess of 20 women, mostly students living in apartment complexes surrounding the University of Florida.
"He targeted clearly young women on campus," explained Jason Miller, Zittel's attorney.
"What makes Brett Robison so reprehensible?" INSIDE EDITION’s Lisa Guerrero asked.
"We know he did this while on duty, in uniform," said Miller.
The accused Peeping Tom was arrested after his girlfriend found the footage and handed it over to his bosses at the police department. Robison was promptly fired. Criminal video voyeurism charges were filed. INSIDE EDITION tracked Robison down to his new job at a Florida nursing home.
"Your victims call you a sexual predator. What's your response to that?" Guerrero asked.
"Please leave me alone," Robison mumbled.
When Guerrero asked, "Are you a sexual predator, sir?" he got in his car and drove off.
Allison Zittel says she's still in shock that the Peeping Tom who made her his target turned out to be a cop.
"He could have actually been doing his job as a police officer but instead he was actually out there creating more victims," said Zittel.
The video voyeurism charges against Robison were dismissed when he pled guilty to 'official misconduct'. He is currently serving four years probation.
