ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Crofton man has pleaded guilty to burglary and other charges after police say he secretly took videos of hundreds of unsuspecting nude women.

Thirty-five-year-old Charles Novak was sentenced to 10 years in jail Wednesday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court and ordered to register as a sex offender.

Novak was arrested in December after a woman told police she found a man sitting in a car in her garage. Officers searched the area and found Novak, who had a camera with videos of nude women who didn't appear to be aware they were being recorded.

Prosecutors say Novak had 2,282 video clips of 260 different women. Some of the women have been identified, but many have not.

Novak's attorney says his client is obsessive-compulsive and wants to get help.
