WHEATON (AP) — A former student at a suburban Chicago Christian college has been sentenced to 180 days in jail for secretly filming female classmates in their campus apartment bathroom.

Alexander Lim of Singapore apologized to his victims during a nearly four-hour sentencing hearing over two days, ending Thursday. Prosecutors showed excerpts of the videos, showing 40 female Wheaton College students using the toilet and showering.

DuPage County Circuit Judge John Kinsella also sentenced Lim to 30 months of sex-offender probation. Authorities say it’s likely Lim will be deported after his release from jail.

Lim pleaded guilty earlier this year to placing a small camera in the bathroom of a college-owned apartment. He then shared several of the files online. Each video was viewed thousands of times.
