Sentencing Delayed For Man Who Hid Camera In Bathroom Of His Redding Home

Sentencing has been delayed for a Redding man who installed 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. 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 was set for sentencing last week, but that’s been continued to December 21st.
