Man sentenced in local peeping cell phone case

A man who set up a cell phone to record users inside at bathroom at Dollar General in Wayland almost two years ago was sentenced to between 4 years, nine months and 20 years in prison for child sexually abusive activity.

Timothy Keckler, who turned himself in to authorities last January, was sentenced to 495 days each for counts of capturing and distributing an image of an unclothed person and using a computer to commit a crime. He pleaded guilty in March to three of 12 charges and received credit for time served.

Police said a 10-year-old found the camera inside the Dollar general bathroom in June 2019 and it was later determined that the phone belonged to Keckler, a former employee at the store. More than 250 images of child pornography were found on the phone.
