A 53-year-old man admitted in court today to charges brought against him in October that he was secretly video recording a child in her bedroom and bathroom at a home in Beavercreek.

Jack MacKenzie pleaded guilty to five counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance; one count of gross sexual imposition; two counts of pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor; one count of possessing criminal tools; and one count of voyeurism, according to proceedings in Greene County Common Pleas Court.

Judge Stephen Wolaver sentenced MacKenzie to serve 11 years in prison. In addition, Mackenzie was classified as a Tier II sex offender, requiring him to register with the sheriff’s office in his county of residence every 100 days for 25 years, according to court records.

MacKenzie has been an inmate in the Greene County Jail since his arrest in October 2017 when a relative of the victim filed a police report.

Investigators said MacKenzie hid cameras in the child’s bedroom alarm clock as well as in a false outlet and in a USB charging port in the child’s bathroom.
