RACINE — A Town of Burlington man who referees high school and youth football games in northern Illinois was jailed Friday for allegedly taking at least one video of a female relative through a spy camera hidden in a bathroom clock.

Racine County prosecutors charged Stanley D. Perry, 55, on Aug. 29 with illegally capturing an image of nudity, invasion of privacy via surveillance device and domestic abuse-related disorderly conduct.

“He took video of an 18-year-old without her consent,” Racine County Assistant District Attorney Andrew Wier said in asking for a $10,000 cash bond during Perry’s initial appearance in court on Friday.

According to his criminal complaint, Perry’s wife found a video on their computer on Aug. 24. The video showed the female relative undressing and entering a shower, the complaint stated.

Perry’s wife reported that she traced the video back to what she believed was a spy cam, placed in a bathroom clock, so the recording could be done secretly, the complaint stated.

The wife said the clock had been in the bathroom for months and when she awakened him to confront him, they struggled and he was able to flee with the clock, the complaint stated.

His wife reportedly told Racine County sheriff’s investigators that he admitted to making one video, then to twice making recordings — but that he said “it wasn’t all his fault” because he was “just curious,” according to the complaint.

Perry’s wife allegedly told investigators that Perry said he had walked into the teen’s bedroom once and she was sitting on the bed in underwear without a bra and it had “piqued his curiosity,” so he put the camera in, the complaint stated.

Defense attorney Brian Dimmer said Perry works as the head referee and oversees appointment of referees for football games in northern Illinois. Perry, of the 3300 block of Moss Road in the Bohners Lake neighborhood, said he refs and appoints referees for high school football games on Friday nights and for youth football leagues on Saturdays and Sundays.

“The total number of games he’s responsible for is like 170 games,” Dimmer said.

During his initial appearance in court Friday on the felony and misdemeanor charges, Court Commissioner Alice Rudebusch set a $2,500 cash and $5,000 signature bond for Perry. She also ordered him not to have any contact with the teen and banned him from using the computer and any cameras.

Perry’s preliminary hearing is set for Thursday.

He remained in the Racine County Jail Friday evening, jail logs showed.
