SANTA ANA  (AP) — A man who hid a video camera in a dressing room at an Orange County college to record young girls taking off their clothes has pleaded guilty to a child pornography charge.

The Orange County Register reports 33-year-old Paul Barbour entered his plea Tuesday. He’ll be sentenced in October to 5 to 10 years in federal prison.

Barbour was an emcee for children’s dance competitions at Cypress College and worked for Cypress-based Kids Artistic Review.

Though the investigation stemmed from the hidden camera, Barbour was prosecuted for images police found at his home.

In a plea agreement, he admitted having more than 600 photos and videos of child pornography that he’d downloaded in the month before his arrest.
