A Land O' Lakes jail detention deputy was arrested and placed on paid administrative leave after he took pictures of a naked woman and sent them to others, according to Pasco County Sheriff’s deputies.
According to an arrest report, Brian Dale Pratt took pictures of a completely nude woman unconscious in a bed in her New Port Richey home Feb. 13. The images were taken with a cell phone camera and mailed out to her ex-husband and daughter, according to the report.
The victim told a detective that the pictures were taken without permission while she was passed out from drinking too much at a party.
Pratt, of Hudson, told a detective he took pictures of the woman naked and vomiting in the bathroom and then escorted her to bed with the help of her relatives. When asked whether he took photos of her after she was passed out, he answered: “I don’t remember if I did or didn’t.”
The handwriting on the envelopes that contained the images matched Pratt’s handwriting samples. The pictures were found on his phone.
Pratt, 51, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of voyeurism in the first degree. He was released from jail on $150 bond. Pasco Sheriff’s Office spokesman Kevin Doll said Pratt works at the Land O' Lakes Jail and was placed on paid administrative leave.
