Tyler Jones, Villanova Student, Accused Of Peeping On Women, Uploading Videos To Porn Site

Police say Villanova University student Tyler Jones has admitted to using his smart phone to secretly record a woman disrobing in a bathroom in order to upload the video to a porn website, NBC10 in Philadelphia reports.

Radnor Patch reports that Jones faces several felony and misdemeanor charges for recording at least three women, including a child pornography charge because one of the victims was 17 years old at the time.

Radnor Police Detective T.J. Schreiber told Patch that authorities got a tip from a woman who said a friend recognized her in a video on a porn website. She believed she was spied on in Jones' brother's bathroom during a trip to Switzerland in 2012.

Schreiber told CBS Philadelphia that an investigation led to the discovery of two other videos of women whom Jones allegedly recorded. Jones confessed to police that the recordings happened in Switzerland, but were uploaded to the website X-Hamster from his dorm room at Villanova.

WPVI reports Jones has been released on bail. He is also on a leave of absence from the university.
