United States supervisory Border Patrol agent Armando Gonzalez was sentenced today (December 14) to 21 months in prison for secreting a camera in a women's restroom to capture images.
The camera had been placed in a floor drain of the women's restroom at the Chula Vista Border Patrol station for a year and a half. Gonzalez spent a lot of time editing, naming, and saving the videos, according to the United States Attorney's office.
Gonzalez pleaded guilty in May to seven counts of video voyeurism and one count of making a false statement to a federal officer. Gonzalez admitted that when his superiors queried him, he claimed that he had placed the camera there to conduct a drug investigation of one of his female employees.
