A man who Baltimore County police said set up a “spy cam” and recorded people inside a bathroom at White Marsh Mall was sentenced to supervised probation, court records show.
Mussawwir M. Sterrett, 41, of Abingdon, was convicted of 10 counts of visual surveillance with prurient intent in May, and was sentenced Thursday to one year in prison for each count, all suspended, according to his attorney John Grason Turnbull, III.
Sterrett also received five years of supervised probation with a number of requirements, including intensive counseling, Turnbull said Friday. He said his client has already been in counseling for 16 weeks, an indicator of his intent to reform, he said.
In January, police released footage of a man setting up a camera in the restroom on Dec. 23. Police said the camera was placed on a partition between two bathroom areas, pointing toward a toilet — and that it recorded both children and adults.
Sterrett was later arrested and charged in the case.
