HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) – A Beaverton-area man who planted cameras in the bedroom of a family friend’s daughter has been sentenced to two years in prison.
Authorities said the girl’s mother caught 48-year-old Bradley McCollum leaving the teenager’s room in August and found a camera aimed at the foot of her bed.
Prosecutors said McCollum hid cameras in his Clatsop County beach house to record the girl, and later in her bedroom and bathroom, starting when she was 13.
The Oregonian reported the sentence was imposed Tuesday as part of a plea deal.
The teenager and her parents have spoken publicly in favor of legislation to make personal privacy in such cases a felony sex crime with a five-year maximum prison sentence and to require the perpetrator to register as a sex offender.
