John Bednarik II, 33, of Blandon (Berks County) was arrested for invasion of privacy on Thursday (May 31) after DeSales police contacted investigators to report an employee. According to both his Facebook page and LinkedIn, Bednarik works at DeSales as the Director of Campus Environment within the Facilities Department. 

According to the criminal complaint, the victim told police that she went into her office to pump breast milk for her baby with the door closed. The complaint goes on to say that "while doing so, her shirt is removed and her breasts are exposed." 

The victim told police a noise caused her to look up, where she saw a small hole drilled into a ceiling tile directly above her office. Through the hole the victim "observed a camera lens" directly over her desk. While exiting her office, she told police that she ran into Bednarik, who is also a neighbor of the victim, exiting the office next door. 

When DeSales officers arrived, Bednarik produced a Sony video camera, which was turned over to investigators. Bednarik was taken into custody and interviewed at the , where he admitted to drilling the hole and placing the video camera above the victim's desk "for the purpose of sexual arousal and gratification."

Investigators confirmed the camera was recording the victim while pumping breast milk.

Bednarik was arrainged Thursday by in Coopersburg and is currently out on $10,000 unsecured bail. His preliminary hearing is set for June 27.

Harding also issued a no-contact order between Bednarik and the victim, due to the invasive nature of the crime and the proximity of Bednarik and the victim. 

The above information was supplied by District Justice David B. Harding's office. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

Rest rooms are not for Lactating they are for eliminating waste from your body would you drink a drink made in a restroom? Then again looking at some of these rediculous comments some of your bottles probably were made in the restroom! For most women it is extremely unsanitary how old are some of men on this post they seem to be about 12-14. This is very upsetting and disgusting!

ok , what the guy did is totally wrong & he is a pervert for doing so , but I still have a question...why is this lady doing this at work anyway?
Meredith June 02, 2012 at 11:46 PM
So the lady was in HER office with the door shut. (technically a private place) She wasn't in Mr. Creepo-perverts office nor did she have HER office door open to invite her coworkers in for a show. Doesn't that count for anything. Also, he came up with the idea of sneeking in and HIDING a camera. If she were outside of her office, in an undesignated area and someone shot a video that would be a different story.
dalivialy June 02, 2012 at 11:50 PM
@dude... the designated area was probably her office. The law says that you have to be furnished with a private area that locks, other than a restroom. I am a teacher and we are told to use our classroom when the students are at lunch.

WOW! Scary to think this peeping pervert LOSER has ANY sympathy! What complete TOOLBAGS u male pigs are! obviously have no clue that when new moms breast feed their young, many times milk naturally produces on its own (not on a time clock), and those mums who care enough to go through the trouble to feed their young through this process deserve time, privavcy and F'N respect to do so, since our society lacks the idea of parent-child /care bonding quality time-off ...hummm sounds like some of you could of stayed on your own mom's tit much longer, or better off, should of been a muffler
dalivialy June 03, 2012 at 12:17 AM
when you are breastfeeding, you have to be able to pump as your body and baby needs. If you don't, you experience pain and a decrease in milk supply. Kinda like use it or lose it, haha. Breastfeeding women are allowed to pump at work and it is protected by law.

Now she'll be "milking" DeSales for a couple of no-fee scholarships. Her infant is suckling on the golden boobie to a free BA
Michael Elliott June 03, 2012 at 05:31 AM
Heck, she would prolly let him watch if she knew he wanted to look that bad. Nothing to really get that excited about.
Smokey June 03, 2012 at 05:45 AM
Why in the hell is she doing it at work anyway?
SUSAN June 03, 2012 at 06:48 AM
TO ANSWER THE QUESTION, "Why in the hell is she doing it at work anyway?"... ASKING THAT IGNORANT QUESTION IS LIKE ASKING WHY ANYONE WOULD PEE AT WORK. WHY WOULD SOMEONE PEE AT WORK WHEN THEY COULD WAIT 8 OR 10 HOURS AND JUST PEE AT HOME ON THEIR OWN TIME AND IN THEIR OWN HOUSE? THE ANSWER IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO, BECAUSE THEY CAN'T WAIT THAT LONG, AND BECAUSE THEY EXPECT NOT TO BE SPIED ON WHILE DOING SO. FOR ALL YOU IDIOTIC, IMMATURE SEX CRAZED DOPES WHO ARE AROUSED AT THE MERE THOUGHT OF A BREAST, PERHAPS IF YOU ARE SOOOO INTO BREASTS YOU MIGHT GET A VAGUE IDEA OF HOW THEY WORK AND WHAT THEY WERE ACTUALLY INTENDED FOR. MILK, LIKE URINE, IS NOT PRODUCED ON DEMAND BUT RATHER IS NATURALLY PRODUCED BY THE BODY ON IT'S OWN SCHEDULE. THAT'S WHY SHE WAS PUMPING AT WORK!!! WHY DON'T ALL YOU ADOLESCENT PIN HEADS GET A CLUE IN LIFE. IF YOU SPENT LESS TIME JERKING OFF AND MORE TIME LEARNING ABOUT REAL LIFE, PERHAPS YOU WOULDN'T BE SO IMMATURE, OBNOXIOUS AND IGNORANT. TRY DEVELOPING SOME MENTAL FALCUTIES AND SOCIAL SKILLS AND THEN INSTEAD OF GETTING ALL PERVERTED EVERY TIME THE TOPIC OR THOUGHT OF A BREAST COMES UP, YOU MIGHT ACTUALLY SOMEDAY BE ABLE TO SEE ONE IN REAL LIFE, ATTCAHED TO A REAL WOMAN WHO DESERVES RESPECT AS A PERSON. YOU DREWELING NEANDERTHALS NEED TO GET A LIFE AND GET A CLUE. YOU ARE A WASTE OF OXYGEN.
Geoff June 03, 2012 at 07:42 AM
LOL... Your rant was nearly as entertaining as the article..What a battleax you are! I do not envy your husband, or as you likely refer to him your "hubby". your lecture was actually credible though until your absolute butchering of the word "drooling".
lovin da juggs June 03, 2012 at 08:54 AM
C'mon everyone, lets focus on the tits....um, task at hand...we are all acting like boobs here! If we just put our breast foot forward here we can move past it .....this subject has been milked for all its worth.....I believe that the whole point is udderly useless anyway.......
JusaGuy June 03, 2012 at 09:46 AM
All of them at school and the police department, hell I won't believe it unless i see it with my own eyes, Jus sayun you have to be sure and I never believe anything I read on the internet. Only thing though? If shes ugly I don't know if want to see them or not.
Dude Lebowski June 03, 2012 at 05:16 PM
@ dalivialy.....Technically she wasn't in the " DSU designated areas" [quote] McNamara said. There are lactation rooms accessible only with designated identification cards on DeSales' campus [quote/] http://www.lehighvalleylive.com/lehigh-county/index.ssf/2012/06/desales_university_employee_se.html
dalivialy June 03, 2012 at 09:53 PM
@Dude, apologies I didn't see that other article. Going off personal experience. He probably shouldn't have taped it anyway though! Haha.
Jimmy d June 04, 2012 at 11:01 PM
Hahaha too funny Went to high school with the guy, he always was a tool.
Mary Anne Looby June 07, 2012 at 09:27 PM
He should be listed on the sexual predators list, since that is why he did it.
T. Waite June 08, 2012 at 04:20 AM
So I have read comments that state this should not be against any privacy laws because pumping is the same as breastfeeding. Ahem...I think you are full of it! Breastfeeding is natural and can be done in public but if I am breastfeeding my child in my living room and a nasty comes to peep into my window I would call the cops. This is the same thing. She sought a private setting and he violated her privacy.
layla wyker June 08, 2012 at 09:20 PM
all of you guys on here are just as disgusting as the man who taped this poor lady. why dont you guys pick up a bible or a book on how to be a decent human being. that noble woman was violated of her privacy, she was just trying to nourish her child in what she thought was a safe and secluded place. obviously if it werent the ignorance, perversion, and criticism women get from you pervs she wouldnt have to hide in a room. you people are honestly sick. obviously you all jack off because not one woman would want to even be near you so you have to use your clammy hands . how would you like being filmed in your mother's basement jacking off on your dirty sofabed with your little lays potato chips bags and digorno's pizza boxes laying around? i bet you wouldnt like it when your coworkers (if you have a job, that is) laughing at you, watching you? you things are disgusting, you should all be ashamed of yourselves. learn how to respect, and grow up!
