Former Santiva Chronicle editor pleaded no contest to three charges of video voyeurism stemming from a March 1 incident on Sanibel Island. David Staver, 68, Vincennes, Ind., will serve 30 days in the Lee County Jail and 36 months of probation, which may be transferred to his hometown. He was booked into the jail on Sept. 24.

Staver was attending the Sanibel Shell Festival when a female “observed the suspect place his phone under a woman’s skirt, which was to the middle of her knees, and appeared to take a photo,” the Sanibel Police report stated. He was reportedly confronted by the mother of the victim and initially denied taking any such photos.

However, the mother requested police be called and Staver was detained by a traffic aid until Sanibel Detective John Eicher arrived on the scene. Eicher’s nearly month-long investigation revealed Staver had been taking secret photos and videos of women dating back to 2005. Three victims were identified in Sanibel and Vincennes police were notified of possible victims there.

Staver is required to follow all recommendations from sex addiction treatment, have no contact with the victims in this case, and not allowed to possess a camera or electronic device with picture or video capabilities outside his home, as part of his sentencing. He must also submit his DNA to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement database.
