A Sandusky County man was ordered Wednesday to serve 30 days in a Findlay work-release program for illegally photographing women at a Findlay tanning salon.

Casey T. Miller, 27, of Gibsonburg, pleaded no contest Wednesday in Findlay Municipal Court to six counts of voyeurism, each a second-degree misdemeanor.

Six other voyeurism counts were dismissed as part of plea negotiations.

Findlay police said Miller photographed women last spring by lifting his cellphone over tanning booth walls at Tan Pro, 1040 Interstate Court.

Detectives identified the victims through the photos and from visitor logs at the business.

Miller was previously found guilty of voyeurism in Bowling Green and Fremont municipal courts. Those offenses took place at other tanning salons.

Miller told a Bowling Green judge he has a sex addiction, according to the Sentinel-Tribune newspaper.

On Wednesday, defense attorney Tim Braun said Miller has progressed to admitting he has a problem. Braun emphasized that Miller did not upload the images online.

“On his behalf, I would like to apologize to the women involved,” Braun said.

Miller declined to make a statement during the hearing.

Judge Jonathan Starn sentenced Miller to 90 days of supervision. He suspended 60 days and allowed the remainder to be served at the work-release center, known as the Work Opportunity and Rehabilitation Center.

Miller also was fined $1,500 plus court costs. He must continue with counseling, the judge said.
Starn followed the attorneys’ joint sentencing recommendation.

Miller will be labeled a Tier I sex offender, and will be required to register with a local sheriff’s office for 15 years. He may not live within 1,000 feet of a school, Starn said.
