Liberty Lake man accused of voyeurism

A 26-year-old man is accused of peeping into windows in Liberty Lake over the last six weeks in search of undressed women and sexual activity.

Samuel J. Hall appeared in Spokane County Superior Court Thursday on a voyeurism charge after a man said he’d spotted him looking into windows Tuesday night.

The tipster said the man ran into an apartment at the Bitterroot Lodge Apartment in the 21000 block of East Mission, where police contacted Hall’s wife early Wednesday.

She told detectives she worked the graveyard shift; her husband arrived during the interview and reportedly “made admissions that indicated he was probably responsible for the recent prowler calls.”

A similar incident had been reported July 10 in the 2100 block of N. Sedge, and residents had been reporting prowlers at Hall's apartment complex since June.

Hall told police he moved to the area in June and that he often went out at night to look for nudity and sexual activity in open windows, police said.

“He indicated he got a thrill while watching,” according to an affidavit prepared by the Liberty Lake Police Department.

Judge Michael Price allowed Hall to leave jail on his own recognizance after his court appearance Thursday.
