The man who used a hidden recorder to make videos of two young girls taking showers at his Carson City home has been sentenced to 19 years in federal prison.
Marcus Gabriel Henderson, 34, pleaded guilty in January to a count of attempted production of child pornography. U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks ordered the sentence and that Henderson register for life as a convicted sex offender.
Forensic examination of two video cameras placed in the shower revealed 277 video clips of two girls, one of whom was 13 at the time.
Henderson admitted creating the videos, saying he intended to distribute them to Internet users in exchange for something of value.
In addition, investigators recovered more than 1,200 images and 10 child-pornography videos from computers and other digital devices Henderson used.
Nevada U.S. Attorney Dan Bogden said people who produce those types of images deserve significant prison time.
“The sharing of child pornography over the Internet results in repeated re-victimization and can negatively affect a victim for the rest of his or her life,” he said.
