A jury has found a man guilty of peeping on a child, according to the Mecklenburg County District Attorney's Office.

Antonio Cabral, 57, was sentenced to 15-27 months and will be considered a registered sex offender for a period of 30 years upon his release from prison.

The issue was first reported in 2016 when the victim was scrolling through Cabral's and discovered secretly recorded images of herself in the bathroom.

She showed the photos to her mother, who reported it to the authorities. A black device in the bathroom, assumed to be a recording device, was also reported but was not recovered.
