Update On Boise Chiropractor Accused of Being a ‘Peeping Tom’
Hide and Go Peek
Garden City Police arrested Justin Michael Anderson, 33, for an alleged 'Peeping Tom' incident that occurred on Sep. 16, 2022.
According to CBS2 IdahoNews, a female patient had discovered a hidden "recording device" while undressing in the chiropractor's changing room.
Outraged and distraught, the patient left the chiropractor's office and immediately contacted authorities.
Garden City Police arrested the 33-year-old practitioner later that day on two counts of video voyeurism.
KTVB7 reports "the second count alleges that Anderson also committed video voyeurism on Feb. 11, 2022." A week later, Anderson was arraigned at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 22.
What is Video Voyeurism?
The Idaho State Legislature defines and describes video voyeurism under Idaho state law by the following standard:
A person is guilty of video voyeurism when, with the intent of arousing, appealing to or gratifying the lust or passions or sexual desires of such person or another person, or for his own or another person’s lascivious entertainment or satisfaction of prurient interest, or for the purpose of sexually degrading or abusing any other person, he uses, installs or permits the use or installation of an imaging device at a place where a person would have a reasonable expectation of privacy, without the knowledge or consent of the person using such place.

Details and Updates
Despite the nature of Anderson's alleged sex crimes, the chiropractor is not being held in Ada County jail. According to Ada County court records, Anderson posted a $350,000 surety bond following his first September court date.
In the update posted by KTVB7 on Dec. 13, the alleged 'Peeping Tom' had waived his right to a preliminary hearing, "and was bound over to Ada County District Court." Court records further indicate that an entry-of-plea hearing is scheduled on Jan. 3, 2023. Should Anderson plea 'not guilty', his case will go to trial.
