     PHOENIX – This week, Garrison Sloan, 44, of Fort Defiance, Ariz., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Douglas L. Rayes to 6 years’ imprisonment, to be followed by lifetime probation with sex offender conditions and registration.  Sloan had previously pleaded guilty to ten counts of Voyeurism, an Arizona state law assimilated for federal prosecution.

     During parts of 2016 and 2017, Sloan, then an IT specialist at the Tséhootsooí Medical Center in Fort Defiance, Ariz., placed hidden cameras in several bathrooms at the medical center, which he used to surreptitiously view many of his coworkers.  The matter was ultimately referred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which promptly began an investigation, seized all of Sloan’s computer equipment, and was able to identify dozens of his victims.  Sloan and many of his victims are members of the Navajo Nation, and his crimes occurred within the Navajo Nation Indian Reservation.

     The investigation in this case was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The prosecution was handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney William G. Voit, District of Arizona, Phoenix.
