A court appearance today was continued for an Ayden man who already admitted to videotaping inside the Carolina Mudcats' locker room and is also charged with doing the same thing at East Carolina University.
LaDarryl Strong is charged with three counts of felony secret peeping. His next court date is February 6.
The 34-year-old man was arrested in August.
In May, the university said it began combing through more than 400 video files sent to them by Zebulon police. Police said one video showed a purple and gold locker room.
Strong was given probation this spring in a plea deal on a misdemeanor secret peeping charge involving the Mudcats. The one-time Lenoir County Schools employee was arrested in April 2012 after team staff members confronted the man who was posing as a cleaning employee.
Police searched Strong's home in Ayden where they seized 35 computers and at least nine cameras.
According to a search warrant affidavit, "Strong spontaneously uttered that he had done this same thing while in New York, and that nothing had ever become of it."
Lt. Sutton says the ECU cases occurred between January 2006 and June 2006 in a men's locker room on campus. He says in one of those cases it was a locker room at the Ward Sports Medicine Building.
Warrants indicate that Strong had a device on him to take pictures or video.
ECU says the man never attended the university, nor was he an employee.
