The state's case against a Parker landlord, accused of spying on his female tenants with hidden video cameras, is close to disappearing.

Today Judge Shane Vann dropped one of the two remaining misdemeanor charges against Judson McDevitt. In December 2005 Parker police investigators found hidden video cameras inside of four town homes McDevitt owned at Cheri Lane Townhouses.

They also found recording equipment in a shed out back and hundreds of video tapes, with images of female tenants in their bathrooms.

Prosecutors said they could only charge McDevitt with three misdemeanor counts of video voyeurism. A couple of months ago, Judge Elijah Smiley dropped one count because of a defective search warrant.

Judge Vann dismissed another count this afternoon because one of the alleged victims lived in apartment 116, not apartment 124 as stated on the warrant.

Although 124 had camera equipment inside, no one was living there when police searched it. Since McDevitt owned it, technically he was video taping himself.

Now McDevitt is only facing one count of video voyeurism. His next court date is set for April.
