FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Prosecutors say a Frederick peeping Tom tripped himself up by using a stolen camera phone to take pictures of his victims — and inadvertently of himself.

Robert Onley III, 37, was convicted under a plea bargain Thursday of 11 charges involving seven female victims.

Assistant State’s Attorney Lindell Angel says Onley accidentally photographed himself in some of the images.

She says police found the camera phone after Onley lost it while breaking into a car.

His public defender says Onley suffers from undiagnosed mental health problems.

He faces up to 30 years in prison at his sentencing April 27.
