The penalties are piling up for a drama teacher who used a hidden cell phone to take video of girls changing clothes in a dressing room at Ballenger Creek Middle School in Frederick.

A judge sentenced 26-year-old Adam Windsor on Wednesday to nine years in state prison for sex abuse of a minor.

Under a plea bargain, the term will run concurrent with a nine-year federal prison sentence Windsor got Tuesday for a related child pornography conviction.

Four of Windsor's victims told the Frederick County judge Wednesday that the violations they suffered have made them wary and distrustful. A 12-year-old said she now looks for cameras everywhere.

One girl's mother called Windsor "a despicable waste of human life."
