SANTA ANA (CNS) - A 34-year-old man accused of secretly taking a video of a 15-year-old family member while she was showering in Santa Ana pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and was immediately sentenced to time served in jail since his arrest in May.
The victim's mother discovered the video of the girl on Julio Cesar Resendizfigueroa's phone while he was sleeping May 22, according to Santa Ana Police Department Cpl. Anthony Bertagna.
