Charge: Microsoft voyeur ‘upskirted’ at least 93 women

A worker at Microsoft’s campus alleged to have taken “upskirt” photos there and elsewhere of at least 93 women now faces felony charges.

King County prosecutors claim Leonard “Leo” Raymundo placed a small video camera on a path at the Redmond campus pointed up the dresses of passing women. Raymundo, a 34-year-old Microsoft contractor, is alleged to have caught himself on camera while setting up the device on July 24.

Writing the court, Senior Deputy Prosecutor Carla Carlstrom said investigators recovered 86 videos from Raymundo’s electronic devices showing 93 different women.

“The defendant appeared to plan ahead and select his filming locations carefully to ensure an abundance of potential victims,” Carlstrom said in charging papers.

Raymundo, she added, loaded the videos on his Microsoft-issued computer “without apparent fear of consequences.”

Raymundo’s Muvi brand camera was discovered by another Microsoft worker walking near the RedWest building, located at 5600 148th Ave. N.E., who passed it along to corporate investigators, a Redmond Police Department detective said in court documents.

Reviewing the video, Microsoft investigators saw Raymundo hurrying near the camera, the detective continued. Raymundo is alleged to have admitted to “upskirting” on the Microsoft campus days later during an interview with investigators.

Notified of the allegations, Redmond police searched Raymundo’s computer and the camera in December. The detective said numerous surreptitiously taken videos were recovered.

“None of the victims appear aware they are being filmed and are not intending to participate in filming,” the Redmond detective continued. “ln the videos, I noted that Raymundo employs the use of stairs, escalators or checkout lines as an excuse to be within close range of the female victims without arousing their suspicion.”

Raymundo is alleged to have recorded himself on nearly 50 of the videos recovered by police.

Prosecutors charged Raymundo with two counts of voyeurism. No victims have been identified.
