In Circuit Judge Margaret Hudson's DeLand courtroom today, Feb. 18, Joshua Waguespack was sentenced to five years in prison for video voyeurism while he was a teacher at St. Peter Catholic School in DeLand.
In January, Waguespack pleaded no contest to three counts of video voyeurism and one count of tampering with evidence.
Using pen cameras, police said, Waguespack videoed middle-school girls undressing in a supply closet at the school. The students used the closet to change into gym clothes.
Waguespack will have 299 days credit on his sentence for time already served in jail. He will also have to undergo a psycho-sexual evaluation, treatment and an annual polygraph test. Waguespack is to have no contact with the victims, their families or any person under the age of 18 without prior approval by his probation officer. He will be prohibited from working at a school or participating in school events.
The video voyeurism charges do not fall under the state's statutes for sex offenders, so Waguespack will not have to register as a sex offender once his prison sentence and probation are over.
