GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Jhoan Sebastian Bravo, 25, who is in the Alachua County Jail on stalking and child pornography charges, has now been charged with five counts of video voyeurism.
The videos were reportedly found on Bravo’s cell phone after a search warrant was obtained. The videos were filmed on September 24, October 6, and October 21 through window blinds and show an adult in a bedroom. In one video, the victim is undressing and completely nude; in one, the victim is wearing only underwear while walking around the bedroom, then removes the underwear and goes into the bathroom. Another video shows the victim coming out of the bathroom, completely nude, then walking around the room while getting dressed.
Post Miranda, Bravo admitted that he recorded the videos.
Bravo was previously arrested on October 27 and charged with stalking after allegedly following a woman and looking into her bedroom. Homeland Security also reportedly confirmed that Bravo is unlawfully in the United States on an expired visa.
Bravo was released on his own recognizance with a GPS monitor following the October 27 arrest and ordered to have no contact with the victim or her apartment complex. His cell phone was seized when he was arrested, and Judge Donna Kreider signed a cell phone warrant on November 14. While searching the phone for evidence related to the stalking charges, child exploitation material was allegedly found on the device, and Judge Kreider amended the warrant to include that material on November 22. Bravo was re-arrested on November 22 and charged with 12 counts of possession of child pornography.
Bail on the child pornography charges is unavailable because records in cases involving children are usually sealed, but Judge Lorelie Brannan set bail at $500,000 on the video voyeurism charges.
