The owner of an all women’s gym in San Luis Obispo is now facing criminal charges of secretly filming partially dressed women in a bathroom after a pregnant woman found a spy camera at the gym. Cole Corrigan is now facing five criminal charges.

On Aug. 23, the 22-year-old woman discovered a GoPro camera concealed in a white towel placed in a mop bucket. As Maria Lerno examined the camera, she determined it was recording women as they used the restroom.

Corrigan then asked the woman not to tell law enforcement. Ignoring Corrigan’s request, the woman’s husband called the SLO Police Department, which launched an investigation.

More than two weeks later, officers served search warrants on Corrigan’ home and gym, CCC Fitness.

On Sept. 15, officers arrested 35-year-old Corrigan at his home in Morro Bay and booked him in SLO County Jail on felony counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm and for being a felon in possession of ammunition. He was also charged with possession of an an untraceable gun and for possession of testosterone, both misdemeanors.

Prior to his latest run-in with the law, prosecutors had charged Corrigan with five misdemeanor and two felony counts which include transporting a controlled substance, loitering on someone’s property to commit a crime, DUI and public intoxication.

Ya don’t think fighting 7 sheriff’s deputies while on drugs would have put him a little more on the radar? Probably making a pitch to Cal Poly sororities the next day.

Testosterone? I thought he was all natural.

Pretty boy will do well in prison.

Corrigan is a sick individual that needs to be a registered sex offender locked up in a sexual-offender facility.

Maybe a sh$% head, but at least he’s pretty

Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.

Reap what you have sown Mr. Corrigan.
