Junior Alexander Lim, charged with felony unauthorized video recording for allegedly placing a camera watch in the bathroom of a female student to secretly record her and her roommates showering, has been out of state for medical treatment. He is expected to be back in court on June 12.
DuPage county prosecutors allege that Lim placed the watch in the student’s bathroom and had been secretly recording the women showering since October 2014.
Lim was taken into custody on Feb. 23 and was bailed out of jail by his father, Dr. Gordon Lim, on Feb. 27. His father, a medical professional, came from Singapore to post bond. By Illinois state law, he posted the required 10 percent of the $75,000 bond — $7,500. Lim’s passport was held by the court as a means of preventing him from leaving the state of Illinois. Originally scheduled for March 23, Lim’s court date was first rescheduled to March 26 before being pushed back again to April 9. Lim appeared in court on Mar. 23 and asked for a speedy trial due to his family living overseas. Lim’s attorney, Steven Richards, said in March the original continuance was met by mutual agreement.
On Mar. 26, Lim pleaded not guilty to nine counts against him in connection with the videotaping. A Class 4 felony, unauthorized video recording is punishable by up to three years in prison.
On April 9, Lim’s bond was modified by Judge Kinsella to allow him to travel out of state with his mother for medical treatment for sexual addiction in Arizona.
