A six-year veteran of the Legal Aid Society was arraigned Friday on charges of spying on his female co-workers to capture them undressing. According to a 10-count information, Peter Barta, 32, spied on his co-workers on five occasions over 29 months and in one instance captured a female attorney partially undressed.
