Lake Elsinore pastor from Murrieta pleads guilty to taking upskirt photos

A registered sex offender who used a cell phone camera to peek up skirts pleaded guilty today to one misdemeanor count of concealing a camera with the intent to invade privacy and will spend the next 30 weekends in jail.

John Albert Kleinpeter, 51, was also sentenced to three years probation.

Kleinpeter listed his occupation as pastor of the Generations Community Church in Lake Elsinore, John Hall, spokesman for the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office previously said.

Last summer, witnesses reported that a man was using a mirror or cell phone camera to look up women’s skirts at area department stores.

On Aug. 18, a Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Task Force investigator spotted Kleinpeter at a Super Target store on Clinton Keith Road in Murrieta, following a woman and her 10-year-old daughter, according to prosecutors.

The investigator said he twice saw Kleinpeter move his cell phone camera under the woman’s skirt when she bent over to look at items on the shelves.

Kleinpeter was arrested in August at his home at 36581 Oak Meadows Place.

He was convicted in 1982 of assault with intent to commit a sex crime.
