A former South Carolina youth pastor Daniel Kellan Mayfield, 35, has been charged with voyeurism after he set up secret cameras to spy on bridal parties getting dressed, according to a report. He has since been fired.

Mayfield is accused of setting up cameras at the Gowensville First Baptist Church and recording a bride and her party using changing rooms, Fox Carolina reported.

Mayfield was already facing other charges, including one that followed an arrest in May in which police were called to a woman’s home after she spotted someone outside her bathroom window. When she went outside, the woman said he saw Mayfield standing in her backyard.

The filing says Mayfield admitted to recording the woman. According to Fox Carolina, he handed over the video and allowed the woman to view it.

The woman also showed police security video of Mayfield committing the act.

He now faces a total of 58 charges in Greenville County and one charge in Greenwood County.

Mayfield’s Linked In page says he previously worked as an event coordinator with Compassion International, was a missions director at Student Life in Birmingham, Alabama and was a ministry associate at Child Evangelism Fellowship in Roebuck.
