A former Maine teacher, from Bangor, has been sentenced to nine months in jail after pleading guilty to secretly filming women, in various settings, without their knowledge.

The Bangor Daily News reports that 30-year old Benjamin Emmott pled guilty Wednesday at the Penobscot Judicial Center to 13 counts of secretly filming women under their clothing and without their knowledge.

Emmott will register as a sex offender for 10 years.

The counts of which Emmott pled guilty only represent a portion of the women whose privacy was violated because of the statute of limitations laws in Maine.

Therefore, police were not able to charge Emmott for most of the crimes.

The report goes on to say that Emmott may have filmed hundreds, if not thousands of women, some of them possibly were teenagers as he allegedly filmed in secret in schools, businesses, a gym, and bathrooms across the Greater Bangor area over the last 10 years.
