A South Colonie teacher who placed a secret camera in a restroom used by staff members was sentenced on Thursday.

Patrick Morgan received two to six years behind bars.  He previously pleaded guilty to two counts of unlawful surveillance after being arrested last February.

Morgan installed a camera disguised as a phone charger in a bathroom at Sand Creek Middle School. He planned to use the recordings for sexual gratification, prosecutors said.

He will also now have to register as a sex offender.
