A former PHM janitor has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for sexual exploitation of children for putting a camera in a locker room.

Robert Troup was sentenced by a federal judge Friday morning.

Troup pleaded guilty to the sexual exploitation of children charge in November of 2012.

Troup was arrested in December of 2011 after he was accused of putting the camera in the boys' swimming locker room at Penn High School. Some students found the camera and eventually turned it over the school officials, who turned it in to police. Reports say the camera was angles toward the showers, capturing images of students in the showers and getting undressed.           

Along with the prison sentence, Troup will also serve 20 years of supervised release and will have to pay $1,100 resolution to one of the victims.
