SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — A Massachusetts man who fled the state in 2010 after he found out he had been caught secretly recording a teenage girl undressing and getting in the shower has been sentenced to three years in prison.

The Republican newspaper (http://bit.ly/2xTCElN ) reports that 40-year-old Eddie Agosto was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to posing or exhibiting a child in the nude and photographing an unsuspecting nude person.

He was also sentenced to 10 years of probation and ordered to register as a sex offender.

Prosecutors say Agosto lived in several places outside the state after he fled when he found out that the then 16-year-year Chicopee girl discovered she had been recorded. He was arrested in February 2016.

The victim said in court she still suffers fear and anxiety.
