SYRACUSE, N.Y., June 6 (UPI) -- A former Syracuse University athletic media director who pleaded guilty to filming more than 100 male athletes in rooms was sentenced to five years probation.

Roger Springfield was sentenced Thursday in Onondaga County Court to the probation time for one count of second-degree unlawful surveillance, The (Syracuse) Post-Standard reported.

In March, Springfield pleaded guilty to unlawful surveillance after being accused in January of secretly recording more than 100 male athletes inside locker rooms, both at the university and out-of-state facilities, in the past 10 years.

Authorities said Springfield hid cameras in the locker rooms at waist level.
