Matthew Curtis Lehman

Man accused of recording 11-year-old showering

A Phoenix man is suspected of secretly recording a video of a preteen girl showering inside his home.

Matthew Curtis Lehman, 40, faces two misdemeanor counts of second-degree invasion of personal privacy involving an 11-year-old girl, according to documents filed by Phoenix police in Jackson County Circuit Court. He is lodged in the Jackson County Jail on $10,000 bail and is set to be arraigned on the charges this afternoon.

The victim's brother allegedly caught Lehman recording the girl with his phone the first week of January at the same Phoenix address listed for Lehman in court records, court documents say, sparking an investigation involving at least two agencies and culminating with Lehman's arrest Thursday afternoon.

At the Medford police Digital Forensic Lab, police found two recordings on Lehman's phone, both taken Jan. 2: one lasted 1 minute, 26 seconds and another lasted 44 seconds, court records allege.

Invasion of personal privacy is a Class A misdemeanor under Oregon law. If convicted, the crime carries a maximum penalty of up to one year in jail and a fine of $6,250.
