A former PTA president accused of voyeurism has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

Aaron Lee Garibay pleaded guilty to attempted voyeurism in Pima County Superior Court in connection with an April incident at a clothing store.

Garibay, 32, was arrested after allegedly photographing a 17-year-old girl changing her clothes in a fitting room of an east-side thrift shop.

Court documents say Garibay was seen on store security video holding a cellphone over the partition in the fitting room where the teenager was trying on clothes.

The documents say the girl noticed the cellphone over the partition, and she and her mother confronted Garibay. In an initial interview with police, he denied the allegation.

Garibay had been the Parent-Teacher Association president at Steele Elementary School in the Tucson Unified School District. The school is at 700 S. Sarnoff Drive.

Sentencing is scheduled for July 16 before Pima County Superior Court Judge Javier Chon-Lopez.
