PINELLAS PARK, Florida — A woman is suing the operator of a T-Mobile store after she discovered a creepy clerk had stolen a private sex video off her phone.
Keely Hightower, 24, said she grew concerned when the clerk, Robert Sanchez Aramis Ramos, seemed to be taking a long time fixing her phone during a visit to the store in May.
After leaving, she checked the device and realized that Ramos had sent a video of her performing a sex act in bed with someone to himself.
“My heart dropped,” she told the Tampa Bay Times.
She called cops and Ramos soon pleaded guilty and served several months in jail.
Hightower has now followed an invasion of privacy lawsuit against Ramos and the store’s owner, Global Innovative Group. She and her lawyer argue that the store is liable because Ramos had a criminal background.
In 2013, he was charged with stealing iPads from a Walmart where he worked at the time. Three years later, he was charged with running a fake return scam at another T-Mobile shop and was still on probation in that case.
Hightower, who works as a receptionist at an ophthalmologist’s office, says she didn’t discover that Ramos had stolen the video for about a day, so she still lives in worry that he might have sent to someone else.
“My thought was just like where did the video go? What happened after that?” she said. “That was my main concern … I didn’t want the video out there in the public.”
