College student charged with video recording sex

Middlebury College senior student Rupert C. Ralston was charged with video voyeurism in Addison County Court for secretly recording sexual activity with his girlfriend without her knowledge or consent.

State's Attorney John T. Quinn charged Ralston, age 22, with video voyeurism after a former girlfriend learned from others that he had secretly recorded sexual activity between them and had shown the video to others.

Two Middlebury College students provided statements to police that Ralston had shown them a video recording of himself and girlfriend engaging in sex.

Video voyeurism is a misdemeanor in Vermont and carries a maximum penalty of two years and a $1,000 fine.

Ralston was released under the condition that he have no contact with the girl. He entered a "not guilty" plea and return to court for further proceedings June 8.
