San Luis Obispo, CA – In a recent turn of events, Cole Charles Corrigan, the proprietor of the now-shuttered CCC Fitness in San Luis Obispo, entered a guilty plea on Tuesday concerning the illicit recording of two patrons within his gym.
The unsettling incident came to light in late August when a customer at the 24-hour women’s-only facility discovered a concealed camera in the restroom. Promptly reported, the revelation triggered a subsequent investigation into Corrigan’s activities.
In September, law enforcement executed a search warrant at Corrigan’s Morro Bay residence, uncovering a ghost gun, ammunition, and testosterone. The 36-year-old, previously convicted for narcotics-related offenses, is legally barred from firearm and ammunition possession. Initially entering a plea of not guilty, Corrigan faced five charges in connection with the findings.
In a November development, the police identified two victims whose images were surreptitiously recorded at CCC Fitness. Consequently, authorities sought an additional charge against Corrigan.
In light of the unfolding legal proceedings, Corrigan, under the terms of a plea agreement with the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office, admitted guilt to a felony charge of being a felon in possession of a handgun. Additionally, he pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts related to the unauthorized recording.
Sentencing for Corrigan is scheduled for December 19, where he could potentially face 364 days of incarceration in the county jail, coupled with formal probation. The resolution of this case underscores the severity of the charges and the legal consequences facing the former gym owner.
