A former Via Christi employee is arrested on eavesdropping charges, after he was caught filming other employees in a co-ed locker room.

Police say the man had more than a dozen videotapes of co-workers changing clothes in a private Via Christi locker room.

Police later found a tiny camera in the room, and say it may have been there for months.

With today's technology, it's very easy for someone to spy on you, without you knowing.

Many parents use wireless cameras as "Nanny Cams" so they can keep an eye on their little ones. It offers an extra set of eyes and piece of mind.

There are all kinds of spy cams on the internet. You can buy one for just a couple hundred dollars. You can also find items like clocks, lamps and even phones equipped with cameras, and there's nothing to prevent anyone from buying them and peering into your life.

Law professor Clifford Fishman says, "This is not an area of the law that Congress of the state legislatures have really studied."

Eavesdropping, whether it's video or audio is a misdemeanor and carries a penalty of up to a year in jail for each count. The man arrested over the weekend has been fired from Via Christi.

Police are in the process of identifying everyone on the tape before filing formal charges against the man.
