If I Could Legally Have You Castrated, I Would



(Newser)

“If the law allowed me to have you castrated, I would.” So said a judge Wednesday in explaining why Ryan Alden would get life behind bars plus nearly 150 years, the Oklahoman reports. The 39-year-old Oklahoma man, who hid cameras in people’s homes, had pleaded guilty to felonies including manufacturing child pornography and using video equipment in a clandestine manner. His defense attorney requested 10 years plus probation, but Judge Amy Palumbo wasn’t having it. She also brushed off a mental evaluation that Alden was treatable. “We’re here because of the choices that you and you alone made,” she said. “The devastation that you caused these families may never be known.”


Alden was accused of recording a “staggering” number of people after secretly placing cameras in closets, bedrooms, and bathrooms while doing electrical work for security-system installations, per KFOR. He also shot upskirt videos of women in churches, athletic centers, and restaurants around Oklahoma City. Victims or their loved ones submitted painful court statements, with several saying they needed therapy and would always ask if their private images were available online. Indeed, prosecutors said Alden had likely shared videos found on his computers and cellphones. “I’m just truly sorry,” Alden said when leaving the courtroom. Did he get a fair sentence? “Probably with everything I did, yes, but I can’t, I don’t know for sure.” (Read more child pornography stories.)
