HAMPTON, N.J. — A 32-year-old emergency medical technician who secretly recorded colleagues in the bathrooms of two rescue squad buildings was sentenced last week to 90 days in county jail.

Douglas B. Gimson, of Hampton Borough, also received three years of probation, the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement Tuesday.

At least 13 men and women were recorded by hidden cameras between November 2016 and May 2017 at the Lambertville-New Hope Ambulance & Rescue Squad, officials said.

At least 13 men and women were filmed by hidden cameras between November 2016 and May 2017 at the Lambertville-New Hope Ambulance & Rescue Squad and at least two were recorded between November 2019 and March 2020 at the Flemington-Raritan Rescue Squad, authorities previously said.

Gimson was caught after he was spotted standing outside the window of a woman’s bathroom in the Flemington-Raritan Rescue Squad building on March 19, 2020 using a GoPro to film a woman inside the bathroom, Flemington police said.

Gimson, who pleaded guilty to three counts of invasion of privacy in September 2020, will also have to surrender his EMT license and is banned from future healthcare employment.

Gimson previously served as a full-time, paid EMT for the Flemington-Raritan Rescue Squad, but was dismissed around late March or early April of 2020, the chief previously told NJ Advance Media.

He also worked for the Lambertville squad.
