Man pleads guilty to improper videotaping

Success - Article sent! close

A Hanover Park man, who authorities said used his digital camera to record video under the dress of a teenage girl last year in a Wheeling store, pleaded guilty this week in a Rolling Meadows courtroom.

In exchange for Dana Gould's guilty plea to unauthorized video recording, a Cook County judge sentenced the 61-year-old to 30 months probation and ordered him to complete mental health and sexual offender counseling and follow all treatment recommendations, court clerk records show.

Last June the mother of a 13-year-old girl told store security she saw a man place something under her daughter's dress, authorities said. Store employees reviewed security videotape and called police but by that time Gould had already left.

When Gould returned the next day, a store employee recognized him and called police.
