PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A 45-year-old former Maine man who installed hidden video cameras in a home to record unsuspecting teenage girls is going to jail for two years.

Michael Femling apologized Monday and told a judge that installing the camera was "probably the worst decision I've made in my entire life."

Under a plea agreement, he was sentenced to two years in jail, followed by eight years of probation. He'll also have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

The Portland Press Herald says Femling made the video recordings in Westbrook between February 2009 and July 2011, when one of the girls and an adult found hidden cameras and notified police. At the time Femling was living in Westbrook. His latest address is in Montana.
