A Winnipeg man arrested after he secretly recorded his stepdaughter naked and having sex with her boyfriend has been sentenced to one year in jail.

"It was wrong what I did and I need to pay a debt for that," the 55-year-old man told court Friday. "I hope and pray that the burden of what I have done will stay with me."

The man previously pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography and voyeurism. He cannot be named to protect the identity of his now-19-year-old victim.

The then-17-year-old victim had been living with her stepfather for approximately eight months when in January 2011 she discovered videos of herself naked and having sex with her boyfriend on her stepfather's computer.

The teen said she found a camera hidden in a fan in her bedroom and called police.
