Man Who Secretly Filmed Children Using The Bathroom Pleads Guilty

A Redding man has decided to plead guilty after installing a hidden camera in a bathroom in his home in the Mary Lake Neighborhood. The wife of 34-year-old Ryan Rovito called Redding Police March 8th to report that she had found the camera in their guest bathroom and confronted her husband about it, fearing he had secretly recorded their own young children. He admitted knowing about the camera and said he would remove it, but she seized the camera and hard drive before he could get to it. Detectives found more than 900 child porn images on the drive, along with multiple videos from the camera showing children and adults using the bathroom. Rovito pled guilty last week and will be sentenced in November.
