A former Notre Dame employee, charged with putting a camera in a women's restroom on campus, won't be serving any jail time. 60-year-old Don Steinke pleaded guilty back in February to 4 felony counts of voyeurism.
He was arrested last year after a woman found a pen camera aimed at a toilet in a campus bathroom. Steinke admitted to placing the camera there while working as the school's assistant registrar.
Thursday, however, a judge reduced the charges to misdemeanors, saying he doesn't want Steinke's sentence to lessen the seriousness of the crimes, but believes he might be victimized behind bars.
Instead, he ordered Steinke to serve 4 years probation and perform 20 hours of community service each week, until he finds a new job.
