Child porn defendant also shot ‘upskirt’ videos with shoe camera

Defendant sentenced to seven years in prison also took “upskirt” videos with a camera glued to his shoe.

Usually a child porn conviction is enough to lock down a defendant’s creep credentials.

But Cole A. Larson of Raytown took it up a notch.

On Monday, a Kansas City federal judge sentenced Larson, 31, to seven years in prison for attempting to receive child porn on the Internet. But he also had a sideline in “upskirt” pictures of adult women.

According to his plea agreement, Larson downloaded loads of adult and child pornography from an online source who was trying to persuade him to pay $300 for a subscription.

His activity on peer-to-peer computer networks caught the eye of an Independence detective who eventually arrested him.

While searching the house, the detective found a pinhole camera. Larson explained that he would glue it on his shoe and record “upskirt” videos of women.

Larson estimated that he shot about 20 upskirt videos during the summer of 2008, usually in bars.
