County paramedic pleads not guilty to voyeurism charges

Michael Peter Lawler was arrested and booked into the Cache County Jail on nine counts of voyeurism, all class A misdemeanors. 

LOGAN — A former Cache County EMS paramedic has pleaded not guilty to trying to record videos underneath women’s skirts at Summerfest, in June.

Michael Lawler of Trenton appeared in 1st District Court Tuesday morning. His attorney said they are working with prosecutors on a possible plea deal and requested a continuance until September.

The 38-year-old Lawler is charged with nine counts of voyeurism, all class A misdemeanors.

Police report, Lawler allegedly attached his cell phone to a long slender piece of cardboard and used the device to record underneath women’s skirts. He was reportedly seen walking around the Logan Tabernacle grounds Saturday, the last night of Summerfest, between 7:30 and 8:30 p.m.

Police said Lawler appeared to be targeting females in their teens, twenties and early thirties who were wearing skirts.

Lawler was arrested and booked into the Cache County Jail. He was later released after posting bail.

Cache County EMS Chief Jay Downs said Lawler previously worked for the county as a paramedic. He resigned after being arrested.

Lawler has been ordered to appear again in court September 23.
