CHICAGO — A man arrested with video recordings of children using the bathroom at Chicago’s Wrigley Field has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports 37-year-old Nichols Gregor of Villa Park was sentenced Wednesday by Cook County Judge Michael McHale after he pleaded guilty to charges related to the June 2016 incident.

The father of a 12-year-old boy was washing his hands when he noticed Gregor holding a black object in his right hand pointed at his son’s groin as the boy used a urinal.

When confronted by the father, Gregor tried to walk away. However, the father and another man detained Gregor until police arrived.

Prosecutors say police found a cellphone, digital recorder and two cameras on Gregor. They held recordings of males using the urinal and stalls, including several who appeared under the age of 18.
