WENTZVILLE, Mo. (AP) — The operator of an eastern Missouri tattoo parlor faces sentencing Nov. 5 after pleading guilty to crimes that included videotaping women in the store restroom, choking an employee and threatening people with a gun.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 42-year-old Bruce Hymes of St. Charles County pleaded guilty to 22 charges on Friday. He managed Full Moon Studios in Wentzville and was arrested last year after a female employee discovered a pinhole camera while in the bathroom.

The guilty plea included 17 felonies and five misdemeanors.
