Peeping Tom wants his porn back

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Sept. 5 (UPI) -- A convicted Peeping Tom has sued a California city to get back his collection of more than 700 pornographic videos and magazines that police seized.

Dennis Saunders, jailed in 2002 for secretly videotaping a woman and a 17-year-old girl, sued San Rafael in March after the police refused to return the tapes, which Sanders' attorney way were unrelated to Saunders' criminal case, ABC News reported Wednesday.

"There's no legal authority for them to withhold this material," said Saunders' attorney, Jon Rankin, adding his client didn't ask for the tapes of the victims back. "There's nothing dangerous about this stuff. You can buy it at any corner video store."

During their investigation, police seized Saunders' collection of about 500 videos and about 250 magazines, which Rankin said was worth more than $10,000.

Thomas Bertrand, who represents San Rafael, said the city was seeking judicial guidance about returning the material, the Marin Independent Journal in Novato, Calif., reported.
