A former St. Mary’s College of Maryland (SMCM) student has been accused of recording, preparing and publishing videos of men defecating in campus bathrooms without their knowledge, and will face a jury trial in March.
Charging documents allege that 20-year-old Timothy Alexander Bingley, under the username “Shittyboy123,” uploaded videos with titles such as “Big Daddy Has Diarrhea Explosion,” “Cute Guy Takes a Gassy Poop” and “Understall Spy 2” to the internet pornography site ThisVid. The videos have since been removed. The charging documents include 17 total charges, involving seven videos that were either published online or were recorded with the intention of being published.
The videos are said to have been recorded in the Prince George’s residence hall between Dec. 1, 2017 and May 23, 2018, when Bingley still attended SMCM. The videos were discovered by another resident, who reportedly contacted other residents and submitted evidence to Public Safety.
Documents obtained from the St. Mary’s County Circuit Court show that four victims and an Officer from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Department have been subpoenaed to testify in court.
According to court documents, Bingley’s attorneys have demanded a transcript of a grand jury testimony as well as the presence of a chemist/analyst at the trial. The case had previously been brought before the court in September of 2018, but Bingley was not prosecuted.
Bingley waived his right to an arraignment scheduled for Jan. 7. Sources familiar with the case state that they “see no possible way [Bingley] can defend himself.”
Employees of the law firms representing Bingley did not reply to our request for comment before the print deadline.
Michael Bruckler of SMCM’s Office of Communications has issued a statement regarding the case, stating that as the acts “are not only violations of College policy, but may be considered by the State to be violations of criminal law, the College assisted the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s office in its investigation of these allegations.” Bruckler also stated that “The student who allegedly made the recordings is no longer attending the College and is not permitted to enter College property.”
