Prosecutors have brought three additional charges against actor Jean Paul Manoux, one of the stars of CTV sitcom Spun Out, as the show continues its second season run, Torstar News Service has learned.
Manoux, 46, was charged with one count of voyeurism in January after two women, who were renting his condo, found a camera hidden in the Queen St. home.
The actor, known for his TV roles in Community and the Emperor’s New School, will now face a second charge of voyeurism in a Friday court appearance for allegations stretching between 2011 and 2014.
Prosecutors say Manoux secretly recorded a woman “in circumstances that give rise to reasonable expectation of privacy when that person was exposing her breast.”
Each count carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.
Two charges of mischief involving the Queen St. property were also laid against him.
CTV had originally placed Spun Out on “indefinite suspension” following Manoux’s arrest earlier this year, but that decision was reversed last week when the network aired the series’ season-two premiere.
“Mr. Manoux is part of a large ensemble cast, is not the focus of the series and has not been proven guilty of any crime at this time,” Scott Henderson, Bell Media’s vice-president of communications, said in a statement last Monday. “The cast and crew worked tirelessly on Spun Out and it deserves to be seen as the judicial process makes its way through the courts.”
A spokesperson for CTV said Monday the network was not yet aware of the new charges.
