A Los Angeles judge sentenced a former UCLA employee Thursday to three years in state prison for sexual battery and taking “upskirt photos” of fellow employees.

Jumaane Peterson, 41, pleaded guilty to a felony count of possession of illegally obtained photos and misdemeanor counts of inappropriately touching a woman, classified as sexual battery, and use of a concealed device to take the illicit photos, as part of a plea deal.

Peterson stood handcuffed in front of Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Paul Suzuki in a courtroom downtown and accepted the plea deal.

Peterson worked at UCLA for 15 years as an administrative specialist for the Anderson MBA program.

After his arrest on July 9, the university initially placed him on investigatory leave. He was held in jail in lieu of $190,000 bail.

As part of the plea deal, Peterson will be registered as a sex offender in Los Angeles for the rest of his life. The photos and the device he took them on will also be destroyed.
