Former UC professor charged with voyeurism, recording a minor

FAIRFAX, OH (WCPO/WCMH) — A former University of Cincinnati professor is charged with multiple counts of voyeurism and illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material after employees at a Cincinnati gym found a camera in a locker room.

Fairfax Police told WCPO that 76-year-old Brian Meadows disguised a camera about the size of a GoPro  as a European power adapter and placed it in a changing room at the Cincinnati Sports Club  on Tuesday. Meadows was arrested on Friday and remains in police custody. He was a member of the club off and on for nearly two decades. The wireless camera was running for about an hour until someone reported the device to management.

“We always remind everyone — members and staff — if you see something, say something,” said Cincinnati Sports Club spokeswoman Marie Gemilli-Carroll. It’s exactly that kind of safety procedure that led to Meadows’ arrest, and employees are now reviewing the procedures currently in place.

“They use surveillance of entrances and exits, and they also have a regular routine where they’re checking all the rooms in the facilities — everything,” Gemilli-Carroll said.

Meadows has been retired from teaching physics at the University of Cincinnati since May. According to university officials, he hasn’t taught a class in two years. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
