ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A Rochester man pleaded guilty to a child pornography charge after hiding a camera inside a church bathroom.

According to the US Attorney’s Office, between 2012 and 2014, 61-year-old Stephen Nicot set up a camera inside the bathroom of a church and took pictures and videos of people using the showers. He allegedly knew that some of the victims would be younger than 18 and planned to display the videos with minors.

On July 21, 2022, authorities searched Nicot’s home and found a memory card and flash drive with pictures and videos of at least five minors using the bathroom and shower. They also found two cell phones that contained pictures of a naked minor using a bathroom in Nicot’s home.

Federal prosecutors did not identify the church.

Nicot pleaded guilty to receipt of child pornography. His sentencing is scheduled for May 6, 2024, where he faces five to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
