MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) - The former manager of a Mount Pleasant bank has been sentenced to a year in jail for installing a hidden camera in a bathroom used by female employees.

David Prawdzik of Clare was charged in August with capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person, surveillance of an unclothed person, tampering with evidence, eavesdropping and using a computer to commit a crime. He pleaded guilty in November to the surveillance and tampering charges, in exchange for the dismissal of the other charges.

Prawdzik was sentenced Monday to a year in jail, followed by three years of probation. He was also ordered not to have any contact with the women he violated.

Although he apologized to four of the victims in court, some of them felt Prawdzik failed to acknowledge the gravity of his crime.

One of the victims said Prawdzik took advantage of his employees in a “selfish, disgusting, premeditated way.” Another victim said if the camera hadn’t been found, who knows how the situation would have escalated.

Some of the victims were also shocked that Prawdzik wouldn’t be required to register as a sex offender.
