Charles Edward Robinson Jr. was out on bond, but he was rearrested again Thursday night.
Robinson owns a dentist office on Troup highway. He says he took pictures of a 40-year-old mother and her 15-year-old daughter who were renting a home from him Whitehouse. He admits to police that he secretly recorded them for the past three years to satisfy sexual desire. Robinson was first arrested December 1st for possession of child pornography and improper visual recording.
When Smith County Sheriffs investigated the home, they found hidden cameras facing the mother and daughter's bedrooms and bathrooms.
Indictments state five new counts for improper visual recording and three counts of burglary with intent to commit a felony. Details are still unclear, but the indictments list seven different victims that Robinson taped.
We spoke with the attorney of the mother who was taped by Robinson who gave us this statement:"My clients are relieved and reassured by the fact that he is once again within the confines of the smith county jail." The attorney also says the fact that evidence has led to additional victims is painful to the mother and daughter.
Robinson's bail is set to $500,000.
