A 28-year-old Centerville man who was indicted on felony charges last year for allegedly recording a teenage girl showering in a bathroom was sentenced to 18 months in prison.
Hansley Edmond was indicted by a grand jury on May 7, 2018, on four counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material or performance, according to court records.
Officers responded to an apartment on Fireside Drive on March 22, 2018, on a report that Edmond had previously taken explicit photos of the teen, according to a statement of facts filed in Kettering Municipal Court.
“Responding officers were informed that (the teen) had seen nude videos on Edmond’s phone of herself in the shower that were taken unbeknownst to her,” court records showed.
While investigating, police found two holes in the bathroom, where cameras were likely placed to record the videos, police wrote in the statement of facts.
After search warrants were conducted on Edmond’s Google account, three separately dated videos of the teen were located, the court document read.
According to court records, “Edmond admitted to installing a camera in the bathroom to use as a light and he admitted to knowledge of one video and claimed that this was an accident.”
We contacted Centerville police about the case, however Officer John Davis declined comment since the alleged crime involved a juvenile victim.
Edmond, who remains in custody at Montgomery County Jail, was ordered to register as a sex offender upon his release.
