A former Wichita State student admits that he secretly videotaped his roommates while they were in the shower in their dorm.
Keanan Daniel Smith, 21, pleaded guilty Tuesday to three counts of breach of privacy. As part of the plea bargain, two counts of sexual exploitation of a child were dismissed.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Smith was accused of taping the roommates in February 2012.
Smith will have to register as a sex offender after he admitted his actions were sexually motivated.
Prosecutors agreed to recommend that Smith be placed on probation.
In court documents, Smith listed an address in the southeast Kansas town of Edna. He was a student at Wichita State from the fall of 2010 through the spring of 2012.
