At a court date in May, John Thomas Britton, 64, entered a plea of no contest to three counts of invasion of privacy stemming from charges that he shot “upskirt” videos of school girls in Roeland Park.

John Thomas Britton, 64, the man who pleaded no contest to three counts of breach of privacy stemming from shooting videos up the skirts of school girls at the Roeland Park QuikTrip, has been sentenced to 18 months of probation.

He will be required to serve six days in jail as “shock time,” must register as a sex offender for 15 years and complete sex offender treatment. He did receive a two-year prison sentence, eight months on each of three counts of breach of privacy. However, one of the eight-month sentences was concurrent with the other two, so his underlying sentence is 16 months in prison. That prison time will only come into play if he violates the terms of the probation.

Britton pleaded no contest to three charges of breach of privacy and was found guilty. Two other counts were dismissed by prosecutors in the agreement.

The charges were related to incidents this year at the Roeland Park QuikTrip that led police to accuse him of shooting cell phone videos up the skirts of underage girls. After being alerted to the suspicious behavior at the QuikTrip in January, police had confiscated Britton’s phone and found videos that were taken up the school uniform skirts of girls 14, 15 and 16 years of age. Britton did not have a criminal record.
