Hidden Camera Sentencing

Updated 2 years ago

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) – A former Maine resident has been sentenced to two years in jail for installing video cameras inside a home to record undressed teenage girls. Michael Femling, formerly of Westbrook, was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty in Cumberland County court to violation of privacy and visual sexual aggression against a child. The Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/12Glup0 ) reports that as part of a plea agreement, the visual sexual aggression against a child charges were reduced from felonies to misdemeanors and additional counts of invasion of privacy were dismissed. Prosecutors say the 45-year-old Femling made the recordings between February 2009 and July 2011. The charges involve four teenage girls he knew. Femling, most recently living in Billings, Mont., apologized in court and called it “the worst decision I’ve made in my entire life.” ___ Information from: Portland Press Herald, http://www.pressherald.com(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
