SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - A former media director for Syracuse University's athletics department has admitted secretly videotaping football players and other male athletes in locker rooms.
Roger Springfield pleaded guilty Thursday in a Syracuse court to a single count of unlawful surveillance. The 57-year-old former sportscaster for a Syracuse television station was originally charged in January with four counts of unlawful surveillance.
In exchange for his guilty plea, Springfield was told by the judge he'll be sentenced in June to 10 years on probation. The judge is also expected to rule on whether Springfield should be required to register as a sex offender.
Syracuse fired Springfield in December after prosecutors said he made four secret videos in the Carrier Dome locker rooms used by the football, men's lacrosse and soccer teams.
