FANNIN COUNTY, Tex. -- A Bonham man has been indicted on charges of improper visual recording after a local mother claims he taped her and her children taking a bath.

Jacob Clyde Eaton, 32, of Bonham was indicted for the crime last Thursday.

The victim says Eaton was a family friend who was letting them bathe in his home a few months ago because their hot water was out.

The woman says Eaton told her boyfriend he had taped her. Then her boyfriend found a hidden camera in Eaton’s bathroom.

Eaton’s next court date is scheduled for mid-August.

    That girl, who are you to judge this mother so harshly? Maybe her hot water heater went out, why should CPS be called for such a menial thing. Anyways, maybe this dude was the b/f's buddy, and he trusted him, and she's probably relying in on the b/f's judgement of this screwed up human being. You are probably one of the fools calling CPS and cops on such small things that CPS and police are spending time on less important cases and less time on bigger priorities.

    I couldn't agree more, JC. The friend of the family preyed upon this mom. She was not wrong for accepting help from a family friend. So many are too fast to jump to conclusions. She went with her children to a friends house to bath and should have been able to do just that - without the fear of a pervert video taping them. It's not a CPS issue to be without hot water (she was bathing her kids, thus practicing good hygiene). I've been without hot water when our hot water heater died. It was a weekend, and yes, I showered at a friend's house. Oops, maybe I should be put in jail??? Get real, this mom did nothing wrong. The pervert masquerading as a friend is the only guilty party here.

    Taping the mother makes him a sicko. Taping the kids makes him a pedophile in the making. I hope the DA, judge & jury (if it goes that far) sees the sickos actions as I do. Why would anyone wish CPS on a mother with out hot water? Why not offer assistance or look for an agency who could help the mother. Try thinking "How can I help my neighbors?".

    Friend or foe you don't just go to a man's house to take a bath and bathe your children. There are agencies out there to help you when you have desperate situations. Parents have to be more protective of their children regardless of who or what the circumstances are.

    Wait a minute Anonymous and That Girl, The story says he was a "family friend" not a stranger or a random male the found in the neighborhood and their hot water wasn't working. As far as a CPS investigation, I sure hope you don't have any bad luck, like a hot water heater going out between pay days or just too short financially to get it fixed right away...YOU may need to be investigated. It looks to me like they were a family in a bind and they got taken advantage of by a predator they thought they could trust. No one is to blame but the guy who took the pictures then was stupid/sick enough to tell the boy friend.

    This person should be sentenced to prison without a possibility to parole. And the parents should be investigated by the CPS for not having hot water in the home.
