3 states investigate minister for secret videos

JACKSON, Miss. — Authorities in three states are investigating a traveling Baptist minister they say is suspected of making secret videos of women in bathrooms.

Thirty-three-year-old Sammy Nuckolls has been charged with felony counts of voyeurism in Mississippi and Arkansas and police in Texas also are investigating.

Nuckolls' lawyer, Ronald Michael of Booneville, Miss., was in court Tuesday and didn't immediately respond to a message. A message left at a listing for Nuckolls in Germantown, Tenn., wasn't returned.

Desoto County, Miss., prosecutor Steven Jubera says Nuckolls was indicted there in mid-February for recording 13 women at his home Olive Branch.

Gosnell, Ark., Assistant Police Chief Darrell Watkins said Nuckolls was charged Oct. 25 with one count of voyeurism when he was in town for a religious gathering.

Seymour, Texas, authorities also are investigating.
