Man Who Secretly Filmed Family Using Hidden Camera Sentenced To Prison

A Redding man who installed a hidden camera in a bathroom in his home has been sentenced. The wife of 34-year-old Ryan Rovito called Redding Police to the home in the Mary Lake Neighborhood in March 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. In September Rovito pled no contest to two counts of possession of child pornography and one count of use of a concealed camera in a bathroom. He’s been sentenced to 2 years 8 months in state prison and must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
