Great Falls man sentenced to two months in jail for upskirting incident
A Great Falls man will spend 60 days in prison for upskirting a woman in the Sterling Wegmans last month.
In addition to jail time, a Loudoun County District Court judge today sentenced Shahram Ghassemi, 32, to 120 days of suspended jail time.
Ghassemi will be required to undergo a sexual deviance evaluation, and upon his release from jail will serve a year of supervised probation.
The sentence was handed down the same day Ghassemi pleaded guilty to filming a nonconsented nude person.
Upskirting is the filming or photographing up the skirt or dress of an unknowing woman.
Ghassemi was arrested May 26 after Loudoun County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the Sterling Wegmans after loss prevention employees saw him using his cellphone to take upskirting photos of a woman shopping in their store.
This is not Ghassemi's first run in with law enforcement. According to District Court records, he's served time in jail for petit larceny and has paid numerous fines for possession of marijuana and contempt of court.
In November 2006, he was fined $200 for assault and battery of a family member for a March 2005 incident.
