David Holzbach may find that "three strikes and you're out" applies to voyeurism. He had already been fired from his $129,000 a year job partly because he allegedly secretly filmed women's legs in and around the courthouse.
Holzbach having been reprimanded twice before, the chief disciplinary counsel for the Connecticut Bar has asked for the ex-prosecutor's law license to be suspended, saying that he "cannot be trusted to avoid voyeurism of prospective clients, witnesses or other counsel," among other allegations. It's never good to have a court filing allege that you cannot control your deviant behavior - or to have the ABA Journal report on the story.
An earlier story by the ABA Journal reported that he "had collected and maintained in his office voluminous pictures of women, some being bound and gagged." Charming. And apparently he was doing this on the job which means taxpayers were footing the bill.
I hear some of you exclaiming "spy pen - what is that?" Heck, you can even buy them on Amazon.
Sadly, I am old enough to remember when a pen was simply something to write with. Must we beware of everything? Apparently so. I shudder to think what spy pens have captured without making the news. So the next time a colleague drops his pen at your feet, be wary ladies. Especially if you're wearing a skirt.
Actress Katherine Hepburn took to wearing pants exclusively - perhaps a prescient move on her part.
