A former Denver fire lieutenant was charged Thursday with secretly planting a recording device in the changing room used by a female firefighter.
Daniel Flesner, 47, has been charged with a felony count of tampering with physical evidence and a misdemeanor charge of invasion of privacy for sexual gratification, according to a Thursday news release by Carolyn Tyler, spokeswoman for District Attorney Beth McCann.
Flesner, who is retired, allegedly placed the recording device in the sleeping room of another firefighter. The lens was facing the changing area, the news release says.
When the device was discovered and reported to superiors, of which he was one, Flesner allegedly tampered with the device, it says.
Flesner is scheduled to appear in court for an advisement on April 22 in Denver District Court.
