JACKSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

A Carterville, Illinois man, and former high school band director, has been sentenced to around five months in jail.

Michael Todd Norrington, 42, was sentenced to 150 days in the Jackson County Jail and 30 months of probation for unauthorized video recording, which happened in Carbondale in 2014.

According to States Attorney for Jackson County, Michael C. Carr, on July 17, a Jackson County jury returned a guilty verdict after hearing evidence that on June 11, 2014, Norrington knowingly used his cell phone to take photos under or through the clothing of a 14-year-old girl.

Norrington took the photos without consent of the girl or her mother, for the purpose of seeing the body or undergarments worn by the girl, while the girl was shopping at a retail store in Carbondale.

Due to the age of the victim, the offense is a Class 3 felony.

The investigation was conducted by the Carbondale Police Department. Assistant State's Attorney Casey Bloodworth was responsible for the prosecution of this case.
