Leonardtown, MD - A former St. Mary’s College student charged with covertly videotaping males using toilets and then posting the videos on lurid web sites will have his case set aside for one year, a Circuit Court judge declared Tuesday, March 26. The defendant, Timothy A. Bingley, 20 of West River, was ordered to perform 100 hours of community service for an organization, provided it met with the approval of the St. Mary’s County State’s Attorney’s Office. Bingley’s attorney’s—William C. Brennan Jr. and Mark Palumbo—told Judge Michael Stamm their client has arranged to perform his mandatory service with Farming 4 Hunger. Submission of a mental health report to the court is also required.

Stamm told Bingley that as a result of the agreement he (Bingley) is no longer entitled to a speedy trial. Instead the case will be placed on the court’s STET docket for one year. “It’s on the shelf for at least 12 months,” said Stamm, adding that the state will only bring it back “with good cause.”

Bingley’s case was to have gone on trial earlier this month. A 17-count indictment was handed down in early December charging Bingley with three counts of private place prurient intent, seven counts of obscene matter/publish-distribute, and seven counts of obscene matter/possession with intent to distribute. Court records name three male victims and charge Bingley with uploading some of the videos on web sites with scatological names. The defendant's alleged activity occurred between Dec. 1, 2017 and May 23, 2018, court records stated. All the charges filed against Bingley are misdemeanors.

Deputy State’s Attorney Theodore Weiner represented the state at the hearing.
