A man who pleaded guilty to spying on women in a restroom was sentenced to eight months in jail and five years probation. 

Police say Larry Dean Flowers, 73, put a small video camera inside the women's restroom where he worked.

This happened at Szott's Jeep Chrysler dealership last August.

Police were called to the business in White Lake when a female employee found the recording device.

We're told she originally thought someone left a cell phone behind. When she got closer to the device, at the back of the stall, she discovered it was a small spy-like camera.

Investigators arrested Flowers, an employee at the business, and confiscated his lap top where they found video recordings from inside that restroom.

Flowers pleaded guilty to all six counts against him: three counts of using a computer to commit a crime and three counts of capturing or distributing images of unclothed people.

"I'm ashamed of myself, I'm disgusted with myself," said Flowers in court today.
