Police: Man Videotaped Woman, Girl In Bathroom

Last updated on Wednesday, August 22, 2012

(LOGANSPORT) - A 32-year-old Logansport man charged in a 2003 rape case faces new accusations he videotaped a woman and her daughter in a bathroom.

Jason Christopher Burkett was arrested Friday on two counts of voyeurism and preliminary charges of rape and criminal confinement from 2003, the Pharos-Tribune reported.

Burkett was originally sentenced to 40 years in prison in connection with the 2003 violent rape of his then-girlfriend, which he videotaped, police said.

But a special judge overturned the conviction in April after Burkett complained of problems with his defense attorney.

Burkett was out on bond awaiting a new trial in the rape case when he was accused of videotaping a woman and her daughter in a bathroom, prompting his bond to be revoked and warrants issued for his arrest.

Burkett was issued a no-contact order Monday for the woman and child in the most recent case.
