Pittsfield man pleads not guilty to secretly recording women

Derrick Yarrell is accused of hiding a cellphone in a Pittsfield couple's bathroom

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A northwestern Massachusetts man has pleaded not guilty to allegations he secretly videorecorded women using the bathroom.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that 36-year-old Derrick Yarrell of Pittsfield pleaded not guilty Friday in Central Berkshire District Court to one count of photographing an unsuspecting nude person.

Police say Yarrell is accused of hiding a cellphone in a Pittsfield couple’s bathroom and setting it to record. Authorities say women were recorded using the bathroom on several occasions. Police say Yarrell also allegedly recorded at least one other woman in the same manner at another location.

The couple told police in July that they found Yarrell’s cell phone inside a wicker cabinet in their bathroom. Court records say a video from July shows Yarrell setting up the phone inside the cabinet.
