How and why he walked free (act was not carried out) – such dispicable intention…

A Wisconsin man’s perverted plan to shoot videos up women’s skirts went awry when the battery in his shoe camera exploded, Madison Police said.

He was testing the camera at home when it flared up, preventing him from obtaining any illicit footage.

He injured his foot and suffered minor burns, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

The man, 32, decided to turn himself into police after conferring with his mentor, a clergyman, about what had happened.

He wasn’t arrested because he hadn’t taken any videos, according to police.

“He said he had purchased a shoe camera that he intended to use to take upskirt videos of females, but the camera battery exploded prior to obtaining any video,” police chief Mike Koval wrote in his daily report.

“The subject was counseled on his actions and released, as no illicit video had been taken,” Koval said.

He was allowed to walk away despite a 2015 Wisconsin law banning people from knowingly installing devices to record under other people’s clothing without their consent.

The offense carries a sentence of up to 3 1/2 years of combined prison time and extended supervision and a fine of $10,000.
