Voyeur issued more jail time

A Prince George man was sentenced Tuesday to a further two months in jail after pleading guilty to secretly recording nudity in a private place.

Because the subject is a member of his extended family, his name cannot be printed under a court-ordered publication ban against information that would identify the victim.

The man had hidden a game camera in the bedroom the victim had been using whenever she stayed at his home. When she found it, she took a photo of it herself and the matter was taken to police.

RCMP subsequently executed a search warrant and along with finding a photo of the girl and a card holding images from the camera, they found a jump drive holding images of child pornography and improperly stored firearms.

For possession of the child pornography, he was sentenced to six months time served and for the firearms charge, he was sentenced to two years probation. Also, his name will be on the sex offender registry for 10 years and he was issued a 10-year firearms prohibition.

The terms were issued during a hearing in Prince George provincial court.
