A judge has sentenced a former Geneva area waiter to 12 years in prison in connection to a video camera found hidden in the women's restroom at the restaurant where he worked.
Assistant Geneva County District Attorney Bill Filmore says the jury found 34-year-old Arturo Ventura of Geneva guilty of three felony charges, including two counts of attempted production of obscene matter and possession of obscene matter.
 The jury also convicted Ventura of two misdemeanor criminal surveillance charges.
District Attorney Kirke Adams said Ventura received a 12-year sentence for one of the attempted production charges, which he said was enhanced because the victim was under the age of 12.
Adams said Ventura received a five-year sentence for the other two felony charges.
