A former bank employee charged with “upskirting,” which involves taking pictures or videos of women under their clothing, pleaded guilty Monday.

The Dartmouth Police Department charged 54-year-old William Raus, of Westport, with three separate counts of upskirting with his cell phone while an employee at the Citizens Bank on Dartmouth Street. He no longer works there.

Raus won't serve any jail time, however. Instead, he was sentenced to 90 days of home confinement.

He has also been ordered to get counseling and wear a GPS monitoring device.

Raus is the chair of the Community Preservation Committee and vice chairman of the Westport Planning Board. He was elected to the planning board and is serving a five-year term.
