Alleged ‘Potty-Peeper’ to claim insanity defense

BOULDER, Colo. — The man who admitted in a jailhouse interview to spying on women in a portable toilet at a Boulder yoga festival has decided to change his plea to not guilty by reason of insanity, his attorney said Tuesday.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, Luke Chrisco, initially objected to the plea but has since changed his mind.

He was arrested August 2011 on eight counts of felony burglary and two misdemeanors.

In a jailhouse interview with FOX31 Denver, Chrisco, 31, admitted he hid inside a portable toilet to spy on women through peepholes he created.

He is also accused of hiding in crawl spaces and bathrooms around Boulder. Some of those locations included the University of Colorado and the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Chrisco has had four different attorneys represent him. His current attorney, Matt Connell, will have to prove at a hearing that there is good cause to change the plea.

Chrisco remains in custody at the Boulder County Jail on $250,000 bond.

His trial is scheduled for March 11.
