Eric Andrews Jr., the 21-year-old Grand Blanc man charged earlier this year with recording five coworkers in the Fenton Tim Hortons bathroom, will plead guilty to three of the 26 felony charges against him for six different crimes.
The plea deal is in exchange for the remaining 23 charges being dropped.
The Michigan State Police said Andrews illegally videotaped coworkers in the Silver Lake Road Tim Hortons in Fenton. He also videotaped his best friend and her boyfriend in the bathroom at Andrews’ grandparents’ home in Grand Blanc Township without their knowledge. This happened between 2017 and 2018, when three of the victims were under 18.
On Tuesday, Oct. 29, he pleaded guilty to child sexually abusive activity, using a computer to commit a crime and distributing images of an unclothed person. The remaining 23 charges, including child sexually abusive activity, will be dismissed at his sentencing, which is set for Nov. 22. Court records show he will serve a minimum of three years in prison.
The Michigan State Police Computer Crimes Unit launched the investigation into Andrews. Searches of his electronic devices brought up recordings dating back to 2016
