GP man pleads guilty in hospital spy scandal

A Grande Prairie man has pleaded guilty to voyeurism, in connection with a bathroom video-taping scandal.

The Grande Prairie Herald-Tribune reports 30 year-old Blair Stouffer made the plea Wednesday in provincial court.

A ten-year employee at the Q.E.II hospital, Stouffer is the second person to be picked up by police in the scandal, but the first to face formal charges.

The Herald-Tribune says he admits that he is the man seen in some of the footage, setting up the camera, in a bathroom at the Q.E.II hospital.  Before its discovery, the camera captured 70 videos of three different victims.

Stouffer has been suspended with pay from the hospital, and will be sentenced on October 30th.

Also on Wednesday, the paper reports a Leduc area man pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm, in a deadly crash in October of 2007.

The Herald-Tribune says 36 year-old Daniel Cartier was behind the wheel, when his vehicle rolled on a gravel road southwest of G.P.

25 year-old Jordan Robinson was killed in the accident, while another female passenger suffered a broken neck.

Cartier will be sentenced on October 27th.
