BARRON COUNTY — Randy Schamberger was sentenced in Barron County Circuit Court on March 15, 2019, regarding the criminal charges that were filed against him accusing him of capturing tanning salon patrons on hidden video camera. 

These charges included 7 counts of Class I Felony Capture an Intimate Representation, 2 counts of Class I Felony Attempt to Capture an Intimate Representation, and 1 count of Misdemeanor Invade Privacy-Use Surveillance Device. 

DrydenWire.com reported in May 2018 that after a patron of the Sunshine Fitness and Tanning Salon noticed what she thought was a USB phone charger plugged into a wall outlet in one of the tanning rooms, the Cumberland Police Department conducted an investigation which resulted in Schamberger being identified as the person who had used the tanning room prior to the female patron.

Investigating Officers reviewed the data that was captured on the device located in the tanning booth and it included nude and partially nude footage of multiple female patrons. The criminal complaint states that when questioned by Police Officers, Schamberger admitted to setting up the camera.

Online circuit court records show that at a plea hearing in January 2019 Schamberger plead Guilty to one count of Class I Felony Capture an Intimate Representation and two counts of Misdemeanor Invade Privacy-Use Surveillance Device. The remaining charges filed against Schamberger were dismissed but read in by the Court.

Schamberger received a combined sentence of probation and jail time and according to online circuit court records it is divided up as follows:

For his felony conviction, Schamberger received a withheld sentence of 3 years of probation to be served concurrently with 2 years of probation on one of the Misdemeanor Convictions for Invade Privacy-Use Surveillance Device. In addition, the Court ordered 90 days of time in County Jail to be served consecutively to a 9-month county jail sentence that Schamberger received for the other of his Misdemeanor Conviction of Invade Privacy-Use Surveillance Device. Schamberger received credit for 2 days previously served and was granted Huber work privileges.

The Court also ordered Schamberger to complete sex offender treatment along with any other evaluations, counseling, treatment, and follow-up recommended by the Department of Corrections. Online circuit court records also indicate that a determination regarding the issue of sex offender registration is to be left open until completion of probation.
