Richard Eugene Ipsen, 59, of Tualatin, made his first appearance in Deschutes County Circuit Court Tuesday after being indicted on 25 counts of invasion of privacy and seven counts of attempted invasion of privacy.
Ipsen’s defense attorney, Stephen Houze, said his client was arraigned Tuesday on the accusations against him and will enter a plea on Sept. 30. Deschutes County District Attorney Executive Assistant Nichole Brown said she understood the arraignment was set over until Sept. 30 from case documents and court minutes.
According to earlier reports in The Bulletin, Ipsen allegedly planted a camera — designed to look like an AC adapter — in a Sherwood-area Starbucks bathroom in June. After the discovery, Bend Police executed a search warrant at 2325 N.W. Lolo Drive, a home belonging to the Ipsen Family Trust. At the home they found a hidden camera in the bathroom that allegedly recorded houseguests using the toilet and showering.
Ipsen has no prior criminal record in Oregon, according to the Oregon Judicial Information Network.
Ipsen appeared in Washington County Circuit Court in July and pleaded not guilty to eight counts of invasion of privacy and two counts of attempted invasion of privacy, according to OJIN. A six-person trial is set for Oct. 1.

Until recently, Americans who wished to cultivate their…
The reality: That is not true, said Dr. Richard Koller, a Bend neurologist. A sneeze does increase the pressure inside the skull a little bit, he said. People have worried that sneezes may kill brain cells because other things that increase pressure on the brain, such as some types of stroke, can lead to brain cell death or even the death of the person. However,…
