Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court upskirting decision "allows child exploitation case against Lafayette pastor to proceed"
The pending criminal case against a former Lafayette pastor accused of hiding video cameras in a women’s restroom may proceed now that the Indiana Supreme Court has issued a ruling in a separate case.
Robert Lyzenga, former pastor of Sunrise Christian Reformed Church in Lafayette, is charged in Tippecanoe Superior Court 1 with five counts of child exploitation, a Class C felony, and five counts of voyeurism by means of a camera, a Class D felony. He was arrested May 10, 2012, suspended from church duties and later fired. * * *
Lyzenga is due for trial June 3. The trial date has been continued several times while both sides awaited a Supreme Court ruling in State v. David Delagrange, a Fort Wayne man accused of sexually exploiting girls by taking upskirt videos at Castleton Square Mall in Indianapolis.
