Suspected Fairhope peeping Tom arrested for photographing woman in public restroom

Baldwin County

UPDATE (2:59 PM) — Authorities say Herron’s bond was set at $10 thousand.

If he makes bond, he will be under house arrest and required to wear a GPS ankle monitor.

Investigators say he already had an ankle monitor on when he was taken into custody Thursday from a previous arrest on a similar charge in December 2019.

FAIRHOPE, Ala. (WKRG) — An alleged 32-year-old peeping Tom was arrested Wednesday for using a cellphone to photograph a woman in a public restroom.

This is not Patrick Scott Herron’s first run-in with the law as he was arrested for similar crimes in the past.

WKRG News 5 even had the chance to speak to a victim’s mother back in 2016 where she stated if Alabama’s law were more strict concerning crimes of this nature, Herron would be required to register as a sex offender.

Herron was charged with aggravated criminal surveillance and is being held in the Baldwin County Corrections Center.
