A 66-year-old licensed Bay Area lawyer was arrested Sunday after he allegedly taped a camera to his shoe and then “moved his shoe so that the camera was under a female juvenile’s dress” at an Apple Store in Walnut Creek, Calif., police said.
Jacques Bloxham, who is a personal injury attorney, was reportedly confronted by the girl’s father and fled the store. Officers said they found various cameras and recording devices in the suspect’s car in addition to the one attached to his shoe.
Bloxham was arrested around 3 p.m. and booked into Contra Costa County Jail on suspicion of using a camera to secretly record the undergarments of another person, along with annoying or molesting a child under 18, San Francisco Chronicle reported. He later posted bail.
Police are investigating whether Bloxham recorded others and urge anyone with information to call the Walnut Creek Police Department.
Bloxham was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1986. He founded the Injury Law Center "in response to the public's need for a personal injury attorney with honesty, integrity and a new understanding of the needs of injured clients," according to his Yelp business profile.
