HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - A judge has sentenced a man who worked as a janitor and hid cameras in restrooms of a handful of local businesses.

Judge Madeline Hughes Haikala sentenced Jeremy Nelson to 1,680 months in prison, or 140 years.  The judge said the bottom line is Nelson will be in prison for the rest of his life.

She said his offense is grievous, and Nelson engaged in it for an extended period of time, and she considered all arguments and written statements received.

Earlier this year, Nelson pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual exploitation of a child, two counts of possession of child pornography, and one count of child pornography distribution.  Read more about the case.
