Man accused of secretly recording teen at SouthPark mall out of jail

- 46-year old Paul Schuler is accused of secretly recording video of a 19-year old girl's underwear inside SouthPark  mall on Christmas Eve.

On Dec. 24, 2017 at 2:30 p.m. CMPD officers were called to SouthPark Mall located at 4400 Sharon Road in Charlotte in reference to a "peeping tom." 

The victim, 19, said Schuler had secretly recorded her undergarments with an electronic device. Schuler was taken into custody and charged with sex offense/assault/peeping tom, police said. 

Court records show Schuler lives at a Mt. Holly apartment, but FOX 46 Charlotte checked and a new family has moved in.

So we went to a second address located in west charlotte off Clear Springs and Cottonwood Park Court.

A man, who claims to be Schuler’s stepdad says Schuler’s car is parked outside his home but adds, his stepson travels for work with an HVAC company and leaves the car here when he goes out of town

The stepdad says Schuler is living in hotel rooms.

Schuler was charged with indecent liberties with a child more than 20 years ago. since then, he's racked up charges of public masturbation, indecent exposure and stalking.

Still, believe it or not, he's not a registered sex offender, according to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office. That could change with his most recent arrest.
