Man accused of taking photo of boy in Walmart bathroom takes plea deal

Updated:

OCALA, Fla. - A 64-year-old man will be labeled a sex offender after accepting a plea deal in a case involving video voyeurism.
 
The Ocala Star-Banner reports Maximo Deherrera will not serve jail time for the crime, but he'll serve 10 years of probation and will have to complete 150 hours of community service.
 
Deherrera was arrested in May after a witness reported seeing him taking a picture of a 10-year-old boy using a urinal in the restroom at a Walmart.
 
Authorities said he deleted the photo and gave conflicting statements to police.
 
He faced up to 15 years in prison.
 
Assistant State Attorney Kristi Vanvleet said the victim's family would have preferred for Deherrera to serve jail time. They agreed to the plea deal so the child wouldn't have to go to trial.
