BISMARCK, N.D.–A Bismarck pharmacist has pleaded guilty to federal exploitation and cyberstalking charges.

Fifty-two-year-old Curtis McGarvey is accused of using hidden cameras to record a female guest in his home.

McGarvey told U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland Monday that the first images he recorded were the result of a test of equipment to be used at his business, a pharmacy. McGarvey said he takes full responsibility for any subsequent images.

He says the medication he was on for anxiety and depression took away his guilt for his actions.

McGarvey faces a maximum 30 years in prison on the two exploitation charges.
