Disgraced Roger Springfield avoids jail, sentenced to five-years’ probation.

In a shameful, embarrassing and disturbing act, former Syracuse media director, Roger Springfield, was sentenced to five years’ probation for secretly videotaping more than 100 male athletes in the Carrier Dome’s locker rooms.  Springfield was sentenced yesterday after pleading guilty earlier this year to second-degree unlawful surveillance, a Class E felony, for hiding cameras in locker rooms to record football, lacrosse and soccer players undressing.   

As a result of the plea, the district attorney requested that Springfield, who’s legal name is Roger Cahak, be registered as a sex offender.  The defense argued that the recordings were not sexual in nature despite the fact that Springfield hid his camera waist high and covered the red blinking light with black electric tape and recorded the male athletes changing.

Judge Thomas Miller thought that ordering Springfield to register as a sex offender would be an  unduly harsh punishment.  Judge Miller’s ruling was influenced by the fact that Springfield was willing to seek treatment, had a clean record, and did not distribute any of the footage.
