Castle Shannon landlord found guilty of masturbating into tenant's dirty laundry

A Castle Shannon landlord caught on camera masturbating into the dirty clothes of one of his tenants was found guilty Tuesday morning following a non-jury trial.

Thomas Fallon, 68, was found guilty by Common Pleas Judge Edward Borkowski of criminal mischief and defiant trespass, both misdemeanors. Borkowski acquitted Fallon of a burglary charge.

Police filed the charges in December after a woman renting a home on Sleepy Hollow Road installed wifi-enabled security cameras in her bedroom, suspecting someone had been rummaging through her clothing, police wrote in the affidavit.

The camera footage showed Fallon, the landlord, in the victim's bedroom in a state of undress, masturbating into clothing the woman had worn the day before, police said.

Fallon told police he had not notified the woman that he'd be in her home but said he had been there to fix a water heater. Police noted Fallon later said he had no reason to be there but had never been in her bedroom.

Presented with still photos taken by the security camera, Fallon stopped speaking with police.

Borkowski sentenced Fallon to six months of house arrest followed by six months of probation. He was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation and have no contact with the victim.
