Neighbor recorded doctor in peeping case, records say

ANN ARBOR (AP) -- Records say a 65-year-old pediatrician charged in an Ann Arbor peeping case was recorded on video by a neighbor while apparently looking through a window to watch a 12-year-old girl change clothes.

AnnArbor.com recently published details from an audio recording of Howard Weinblatt's Nov. 23 arraignment that it obtained using the Freedom of Information Act. He's charged with surveilling an unclothed person and window peeping.

Court records say the girl was a patient of the Ann Arbor doctor since her birth. Authorities say Weinblatt was looking out his own window.

Defense lawyer Laurence Margolis says his client is being "prosecuted for crimes he did not commit."

Weinblatt is on leave from IHA Child Health in Ann Arbor. He's free on bond and due in court Jan. 4.
