KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) A former Kearney restaurant manager has been convicted of making video recordings of his female employees in a restroom.

Twenty-eight-year-old Robert Koziol is scheduled to be sentenced on March 30. He’s pleaded no contest to five felony counts of unlawful intrusion. The pleas are not admissions of guilt, but they are treated the same as guilty pleas for sentencing. Prosecutors dropped another count in exchange for Koziol’s pleas.

Prosecutors say Koziol’s employees found a cellphone in the vent of the women’s restroom on Sept. 25. The phone proved to be Koziol’s, and prosecutors say it contained images and videos of women in varying stages of undress.
