David Kelly, 42, pleaded no contest and was found guilty of attempted voyeurism and failing to follow police orders.

When police arrived, Kelly tried to run away. However, Kelly had left his car in the nearby Giant Eagle parking lot so he could not run too far, Gielink said.

The police continued to chase Kelly for awhile. However, he surrendered after an officer threatened to use a stun gun on him.

lock him up - try to get some effective counseling for him while locked up - and make him pay for all of these costs. (trial, counseling, jail time)
