MORGANTOWN, W.VA. (AP) - A lawyer for an FBI security guard accused of spying on teenage girls as they tried on prom dresses at a West Virginia mall says his client is innocent.

An attorney for Gary Sutton Jr. said Tuesday that his client has worked for the FBI for 12 years and has a spotless record. Attorney Garth Beck says Sutton is a father who is mortified by the allegations.

Sutton and another FBI security guard have been charged with conspiracy and criminal invasion of privacy.

Prosecutors say the men were working at an FBI office at a mall in north-central West Virginia when a camera was positioned on temporary changing rooms during a charity event.

Beck says the camera recorded girls at the mall in Fairmont, but it wasn’t deliberate.
