New Port Richey man pleads guilty to videotaping children in beach showers

NEW PORT RICHEY — A man who was caught videotaping naked children at a public shower at the beach pleaded guilty Thursday and was sentenced to three years in prison.

Robert Howard Fuller Jr., 6142 Main St., was spotted last September secretly recording children in the bathroom at Green Key Park. A witness reported him to the Sheriff's Office, which found images of naked children on Fuller's videocamera.

Fuller acknowledged in an interview with investigators that he gets sexual gratification from looking at images of children, according to reports. He pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.

Following his prison stint, he will serve two years of probation, undergo sex offender treatment, wear an electronic monitor and be designated a sex offender. He cannot live near schools or day cares or have any contact with children.
