HILLSBORO, Ore. -- A man who placed a tiny motion-activated camera in a Starbucks bathroom was sentenced to one year in jail and five years probation Wednesday.

Richard E. Ipsen, 59, of Tualatin turned himself in to authorities in June after a camera, disguised as an AC power adapter, was discovered plugged into a bathroom wall at a Sherwood Starbucks.

On March 19 he was found guilty of eight counts of invasion of privacy and two counts of attempted invasion of privacy

Ipsen will undergo mandated mental health and psychosexual evaluations and counseling. He was barred from contact with his victims and can’t possess a camera or recording device.

He was ordered to pay restitution of $1,435.20 and $1,000 in fines.
