BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck pharmacist has pleaded guilty to federal exploitation and cyberstalking charges.

Curtis McGarvey, 52, is accused of using hidden cameras to record a female guest in his home.

McGarvey told U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland Monday that the first images he recorded were the result of a test of equipment to be used at his business, a pharmacy. McGarvey said he takes full responsibility for any subsequent images.

He says the medication he was on for anxiety and depression took away his guilt for his actions.

The Bismarck Tribune says McGarvey faces a maximum 30 years in prison on the two exploitation charges.



Hovland accepted McGarvey’s pleas and ordered a presentence investigation.
