Update: Bemidji Doctor Faces "Peeping Tom" Charge

Posted: Updated:
  A Bemidji area psychiatrist is expected to make his first court appearance later this month, in Louisiana on a “Peeping Tom” charge.

  Fifty-seven year old Dr. James Jarmuskewicz specializes in child and adolescent psychiatry. He practiced here, at this private mental health clinic in Bemidji. Today, I was told by a receptionist he no longer practices here.

  Jarmuskewicz also practiced at the Northwest Mental Health Clinic in Crookston. The receptionist at this clinic says, he’s no longer practicing here either.

  According to court officials, Jarmuskewicz was attending a conference at L.S.U., Louisiana State University in April, when he allegedly followed a man into a bathroom. He got down on the floor to watch the man use the bathroom in the next stall.

  Surveillance video shows Jarmuskewicz going in and out of several men’s restrooms on multiple floors at an L.S.U. Library.

  According to the “Minnesota Board of Medical Practice”,  Jarmuskewicz does not have any prior history of arrest or disciplinary action against him. His Doctor’s license is in good standing.

  Ironically, while the current charge against Jarmuskewicz is pending, a court official here in Crookston says, Jarmuskewicz has been called to testify as an expert witness, in an unrelated case.

  If convicted, Jarmuskewicz faces a maximum sentence of six-months in jail.
