Former school bus driver charged with video voyeurism

Michael Lynn Giles

Miller County prosecutors have formally charged a former Texarkana, Ark., school bus driver with four counts of video voyeurism.

Michael Lynn Giles, 57, is accused of using a hidden camera to secretly record two adults who shared a house with him during the years of 2013 to 2015, according to documents filed Monday in Miller County. Giles’ housemates, a man and woman ages 37 and 38 years, allegedly discovered a flash drive hidden in their home which contained video of them filmed without their consent.

Giles was arrested Oct. 28 and released the same day on a $5,000 bond. As a condition of his bond Giles is not allowed contact with either of the alleged victims.

Prior to his arrest, Giles worked as a bus driver for the Texarkana, Ark., School District but has since resigned, according to officials. Giles is scheduled to return to court in January for arraignment. His case has been assigned to Miller County Circuit Judge Kirk Johnson.

Each of the four counts of video voyeurism facing Giles is punishable by up to six years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.
