‘Hot Shots’ land man in hot water

DuvallSnapping photos of women without permission is against the law, as one shutterbug learned earlier in the week.

Warren Scott Duvall, 52, of the 600 block of Lillian Street, Minden, was arrested on three felony counts of video voyeurism after he was turned in to Webster Parish Sheriff's deputies for using his cell phone to take pictures of women in the Webster Parish Courthouse.

Sheriff Gary Sexton said Duvall was at the courthouse where he was subpoened as a witness at a trial, when he took photos in Courtroom A and Courtroom B.

"A search of Duvall's cell phone was conducted and other pictures were found," Sexton said. "While none of these pictures were nude, they were very 'personal' shots."

According to reports, Duvall had photos of women's breasts and buttocks on his phone. The other photos were taken at local parking lots and churches.

"They were taken without the consent of the victims," said the sheriff.

The three charges were connected only to photos taken inside the courthouse July 30.

Duvall is incarcerated at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center under bonds totalling $30,000.
