Md. man's sex tape leads to conviction

A Hagerstown man who videotaped a sexual encounter without the woman's consent has been convicted for the audio portion of the recording.

Delonte Weaver, 36, pleaded guilty Wednesday to “interception of oral communications,” an offense linked to unauthorized recording of conversations. He was sentenced to three years' probation.

It is illegal in Maryland to record a conversation without both parties' consent.

Weaver was initially charged with surveillance of another person in a private place without consent, but a Washington County grand jury indicted him on the oral communications charge instead.

The victim told police she met Weaver at a bar and had sex with him at his home. Afterward, she noticed a video camera pointed at the bed.

She had no problem with meeting a stranger at a bar, and immediately going to his house to have sex with him, but she drew the line when she found out that he was video taping the sexual encounter? Too ridiculious!

A female meets a male at a bar, goes to HIS house, and has sex with him. She's probably on several other guys tapes. Maybe they should charge her for being stupid, or for being a h--, or both.

Ridiculous. A man is convicted of breaking a law that was never intended to include his situation.
If Maryland wants it to be illegal to videotape sex between consenting adults without prior consent, the legislature should create a law that says just that.
home videotaping equipment has been around for 30 years. there is no excuse not to have a law to cover this, if one is needed.

The sl*t probably thought she had hit the jackpot and would be awarded a pile of money by the jury.

Regardless of what or how you feel regarding this woman meeting this man and sleeping with him on the same night...this man had NO RIGHT recording their encounter.... it was quite sleazy and should have never happened... and to all of you who sit and judge her regarding her one night stand with this man... grow the hell up!! She's not accountable to you and your so called morals.....
