LOS ANGELES (AP) - A former Sears maintenance worker has been sentenced to a year in jail and a psychiatric rehab program for secretly videotaping women and girls in store changing rooms.
The city attorney's office said Friday that 27-year-old Alejandro Gamiz was convicted of four counts of illegal using a video recording device in a changing room or bathroom.
Superior Court Judge Christine Ewell also sentenced Gamiz to three years of probation.
Prosecutors say Gamiz secretly taped women and girls in the North Hollywood Sears store over a period of three years using an array of sophisticated cameras linked to laptop computers.
The cameras were triggered by motion sensors. Gamiz would download the video during his afterhours shift.
Security eventually discovered the cameras and traced them back to Gamiz.
