CAYCE, SC (WIS) -
A Cayce man recently sued for videotaping a college student having sex with him was arrested after police now have two victims claiming the same crime.
Harold "Tripp" Royden Worthy III, 26, of 423 Poplar St., was arrested Oct. 19 and is facing aggravated voyeurism for selling or distributing sexual videos and another charge of first-offense voyeurism for violating a place of privacy. A College of Charleston female student and another Coastal Carolina University student filed reports with Cayce Police on Sept. 26 alleging Worthy had sex with each woman on different dates this year and recorded both incidents.
During a Cayce Department of Public Safety investigation, evidence found on computers, digital storage devices and cameras were seized from Worthy's home with a search warrant.
The first victim told police that Worthy took her to a Columbia nightclub on Dec. 31 for a New Year's Eve party, where he purchased several alcoholic drinks for the 19-year-old. The victim told police that because she was intoxicated, she agreed to stay at Worthy's home. When she woke up the next morning, she was partially undressed.
The victim and Worthy then ate breakfast and went to see a movie before she returned to Charleston, later having contact mostly through social media and text messaging. Worthy first contacted her through social media while she was in high school, the incident report stated.
On Sept. 25, the first victim was notified by the Coastal Carolina female victim, who discovered Worthy's frequent Twitter feed acknowledging videos of himself having sex with women. The two victims discovered Worthy's website and videos of themselves having sex with the suspect.
The second victim met Worthy online and then in person Aug. 25. She said Worthy gave her an alcoholic drink and then the two had sex, which she believes he had broadcasting live on his website during the intimate act.
After speaking with Cayce police, the first victim also filed a civil lawsuit Oct. 3 calling for punitive damages and requested the video be removed from his website.
Worthy was released Oct. 20 from the Lexington County Detention Center on a $25,000 surety bond. He is not allowed to contact either of the victims and was told to not use the Internet.
The first-offense voyeurism charge, if convicted, can leave Worthy with up to a $500 fine or imprisoned no more than three years, or both. An aggravated voyeurism conviction means up to 10 years in prison and/or a $5,000 maximum fine.
Worthy's next court appearance is scheduled for December 4.
