Upskirt photographer case worse than previously reported

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Newly unsealed federal records reveal more details about the Lubbock County man who is accused of taking inappropriate pictures at the South Lubbock Wal Mart, 4215 South Loop 289.

Lyle Shane Johnson, 45, was arrested more than a week ago after a complaint of a man taking pictures up women's skirts.  Johnson posted bond last Tuesday to get out of jail but Friday night FBI agents arrested Johnson and took him right back to jail – this time on federal charges.

According to the federal criminal complaint Johnson was not taking pictures up the skirts of adult women, but instead was taking pictures up the skirts of underage girls.

Lubbock police had already said that when they searched Johnson's phone they found child pornography.   But the FBI complaint takes it a step further and says Johnson got the video on his phone by persuading a 14-year-old girl to let him make a pornographic movie of her.

For now, Johnson cannot post bond to get out of jail.  He'll have another court appearance at which time he can ask a federal magistrate to let him post bond.

Child pornography can be charged at either the state level or the federal level. For now, the state charges are still pending.
