    A Rhode Island doctor has been sentenced to prison for hiding a camera in a bathroom in his home and recording a woman and a 16-year-old girl getting in and out of the shower.

    WJAR-TV reports William Thompson was sentenced Friday under a plea agreement to 18 months behind bars. He must undergo sex offender counseling and also register as a sex offender.

    Thompson pleaded guilty to two counts of video voyeurism.

    He was charged last year after police say he hid the camera in a bathroom in his East Greenwich home sometime in May 2015.

    Thompson, an anesthesiologist, once had practices in North Providence and in Connecticut. He voluntarily agreed to not practice medicine while the case was in court.
