Marquell Watson was arraigned Wednesday on one charge of surveilling an unclothed person, court records show. The charge carries a maximum of two years in prison and a $2,000 fine for a first-time offender.
Ann Arbor police Sgt. Mike Scherba said Thursday the incident was reported at 1 p.m. Tuesday at a home in the 2200 block of Parkwood Avenue.
Scherba said Watson used a mirror and a cellphone to capture images of a 14-year-old girl while she was in the bathroom. The girl discovered what was going on and told her mother, who reported the incident to police.
Watson lives in the home with the girl, but is not related to her, Scherba said.
Watson received a $5,000 personal recognizance bond and is being represented by the Washtenaw County Public Defender’s Office.
He is scheduled to return to court for a preliminary examination at 8:30 a.m. Aug. 22 in the 14A-1 District Court in Pittsfield Township.
