GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) — A man caught peeping into a women’s restroom stall at a Kent County business will spend more than a year behind bars.

A judge sentenced Robert Bell between 23 to 60 months in prison for surveilling an unclothed person, his second offense.

The sentencing comes after Bell entered a guilty plea in April. As part of the plea deal, a charge of being a fourth-time habitual offender was dismissed.

After the incident in September, Silent Observer was seeking tips in identifying Bell from a surveillance image at the business. Authorities didn’t disclose what business the incident took place at.

**A previous version of this story stated Bell was sentenced to 23 to 60 years in prison. The incorrect sentencing has been replaced. We regret the error.**
