PEORIA — A central Illinois man faces up to 30 years in prison after he was convicted of child pornography for making more than two dozen videos of teenage girls showering at his home.

The Peoria Journal Star reports 36-year-old Brian A. Miller of Sparland was convicted of 22 counts on Tuesday.

Prosecutors say Miller secretly filmed five different girls between the ages of 13 and 16 through a peephole and a mirror.

His lawyers argued his behavior was inappropriate, but wasn't child pornography.

Federal court documents show he's set to be sentenced Sept. 16.
