Adair gets 364 days of supervised probation after pleading no contest to two charges

By Carol A. Clark

A former Los Alamos fire captain charged with videotaping a female firefighter in the shower area of Station 3 in White Rock Oct. 18 was sentenced this morning in Magistrate Court.
Judge Pat Casados sentenced Aaron Adair, 36, to 364 days conditional probation.
“He plead no contest to the two charges (voyeurism and tampering with evidence) and he was given a conditional discharge,” Casados said.
The victim, firefighter Jessie Noah, 28, has been on paid administrative leave and has a case pending against the county. She submitted a statement to the court through her attorney John Day.
“The actions of my former supervisor, Los Alamos Fire Capt. Aaron Adair, in secretly planting a video recorder in my fire station bathroom to videotape me undressing and using the shower and toilet have profoundly affected me,” Noah said. “As a professional firefighter, I trusted my life to Mr. Adair and other firefighters I worked with. I am disappointed and saddened by their actions.”
She also requested that before it accepted Adair’s plea and imposed sentence, that the court “determine if Mr. Adair is truly remorseful by requiring that (he) specifically identify here, in open court, who else was involved in these crimes and who else viewed the tapes.”
