Man Sentenced for Videotaping Boys at Minnesota YMCA

Christopher Bradshaw of Columbus, Minnesota, was sentenced to 60 days in jail and two years probation for the March 2013 incidents at the Andover YMCA.

A man who videotaped boys in the locker room of a Minnesota YMCA was sentenced on June 1.

Christopher Bradshaw of Columbus, Minnesota, was sentenced to 60 days in jail and two years probation for the March 2013 incidents at the Andover YMCA, according to a Star Tribune report. Bradshaw, 49, pleaded guilty to two counts of interfering with privacy when he used a smartwatch to record two boys changing.

The two boys did not know they were being recorded, according to a Pioneer Press report.

He was also charged with two counts of possession of child pornography, but those counts were dropped as part of the plea deal.

“This is a disturbing incident in which young boys were targeted by a repeated offender,” Anoka County Attorney Tony Palumbo said in a news release.

Bradshaw was convicted of first-degree criminal sexual assault involving a victim younger than 13 in Hennepin County in 1997, according to the Star Tribune.

He was released from prison for a criminal sexual conduct offense fourth months prior to the incident, according to the Pioneer Press.
