    If the recording was 8 seconds, I'd suspect he's an SportsJournalists.com member ... ;D

    NORWICH, Conn. (AP)_ A Norwich man has been convicted in a voyeurism case for allowing a friend to use a cell phone to record a 10-second video of him having sex with his girlfriend.
    Russell Sheppard, 22, was convicted Wednesday of being an accessory to voyeurism and faces up to five years in prison.
    The sex act between Sheppard and his then-girlfriend was recorded in 2004 on the cell phone of Sheppard's friend, Joseph Peters.
    Defense attorney Richard Perry says the recording was a spontaneous act on Peters' part, and Sheppard had no idea the video was being made.
    Peters pleaded no contest last year to one count of voyeurism and received a suspended sentence with three years of probation.

    This is so stupid how they are going after people who has done nothing wrong in reality.

    But to tell you what the difference is I believe its 2 seconds lol. On a serious note how can they convict someone if no crime happend? I got to say I love the American legal system.

    Isn't making an unauthorized video of someone having sex illegal?

    It is. But, only really punishable if you plan to disseminate.

    (Always wanted to use that word in this context. Thank you, thank you...)

    According to the first line he was convicted for allowing a friend to film him and his girlfriend....Now I don't see why this is illegal if the friend said do it its ok.

    It was recorded in 2004, so four years later, she wants to press charges. Very interesting. At least the friends didn't pull the rodeo on her (jumping out of the closet mid-intercourse).

    Edit: Actually in re-reading this and learning the other definitions of a "rodeo," this sounds like it could constitute some sort of legal action.
