A former three-term state lawmaker Tuesday became the first person convicted under Vermont's new peeping tom law. Burlington lawyer Alan Bjerke pleaded no contest to one count of attempted voyeurism for sticking his cell phone camera where it didn't belong.

Bjerke was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 2000. He served three terms as a Burlington representative in the Vermont House. He is a lawyer with one of Burlington's most respected firms. Tuesday, he admitted his guilt to high-tech peeping at a tanning parlor.

Bjerke usually comes to court to represent his clients. Tuesday, he needed a lawyer because he was charged with violating Vermont's one-year-old peeping tom law. Police say Bjerke committed his crime at the Body Le Bronz tanning parlor on Pearl Street using his camera phone.

Bjerke was tanning in booth number three on February 9 and reached up over the top of the wall with his picture phone and started taking pictures of the woman who was in booth number four, according to police affidavits. Police say the half-clothed woman was looking in the mirror and in the reflection saw the phone above the wall pointed at her, and she yelled out, "Are you taking a picture of me?" Then she quickly got dressed and notified the attendant while Bjerke continued to tan in booth number 3.

I never tan at salons that do not have walls that go ceiling to floor - or have huge mirrors on walls that abut back hallways, bathrooms, or storage rooms.
