Victims of a convicted Marlborough voyeur are speaking up about what they've endured and how they're terrorized by the fact that he remains in the neighborhood.
William Myers was convicted on Friday in Hartford Superior Court of two counts of voyeurism. The victims include neighbors and his own girlfriend, who has Alzheimer's Disease.
Linda Fisher said she thought she knew her 74-year-old neighbor, but was shocked to discover he'd secretly taken pictures of her and others in his bathroom for years.
Fisher said that Myers invited her and others over to swim in his pool time and time again and hid cameras inside a tissue box in the bathroom.
"I felt that he had lured me into the situation. I am one of his victims," she said. "How he lured me into this and the things he did to make it happen, I got more and more angry."
Randall Dumas' mother is Myers girlfriend and owns the home where Myers taped the women.
"I hope he is punished heavily for this. I really do," Randall Dumas said. "[She] just did not have any control of the situation, could not say no, could not do anything to stop him," Dumas said of his mother.
State police arrested Myers on April 10, 2013 on several charges, including 112 counts of voyeurism.
Fisher said even after Myers reached a plea deal on Friday and was convicted, she sees him around because Myers remains in his Marlborough home.
"When I see him walking around our neighborhood with his head held high like he never did anything wrong, I've gotten more angry," said Fisher. "It makes me feel awful. I don't feel safe. I feel like he might be looking in the window. I'm afraid to go outside at night."
Unfortunately, Myers has legal grounds to remain in the home at this time and they're currently sharing his childhood home, Dumas said. His mom now lives elsewhere to be properly cared for.
Just like his neighbors, Dumas wants the man out.
"Rot in jail, rot in hell, and stay out of our lives," Dumas said.
Myers' next court date is set for June.
Fisher said if Myers does not leave the neighborhood, she'll issue her own civil suit against him.
