SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - The Syracuse University athletic department's former media director has been sentenced to five years of probation for secretly videotaping male athletes in locker rooms.

Local media outlets report that the judge who sentenced Roger Springfield on Thursday called his actions ``strange, bizarre and colossally stupid.''

The 57-year-old former local television sportscaster pleaded guilty in March to a felony count of unlawful surveillance. Onondaga (ahn-uhn-DAH'-gah) County prosecutors say they found more than 100 identifiable victims on recordings he kept on his computer.

They say he obtained the images by hiding a camera in the locker rooms of the football team and the men's lacrosse and soccer teams. He was fired in December after a police investigation that started when a university employee noticed locker-room footage on a video from a football game.
