4th sailor sentenced in shower video case

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - A fourth Navy sailor is sentenced by court-martial to prison after pleading guilty to secretly videotaping female trainees undressing and sharing the videos.

Petty Officer 3rd Class Cody Shoemaker will serve 18 months behind bars and receive a bad conduct discharge.

The incidents happened over a 10-month period aboard the submarine USS Wyoming.

Shoemaker says the camera was positioned in a tight crawl space that had a view into the sub's shower area.

Seven sailors have been charged in the case. Prosecutors say they traded the videos "like pokemon cards" for energy drinks and other items.

Three pleaded guilty last week.
