His actions warrant a lengthy prison sentence to punish him and protect society,” District Attorney Brown said.

Torre visited for about 90 minutes and left. The following day Torre repeatedly called Graves by phone, but there was no answer.

The next morning, Torre went to the apartment and when no one answered, he had the building’s super open the door. Graves’ body was discovered in the bathtub and his death was ruled as the result of strangulation.

Evidence introduced at trial revealed that hours earlier that day, Epps used the victim’s credit card to purchase a bus ticket to Boston.

(Scroll down for video) A family feels betrayed by their neighbor with whom they were good friends.

Bradley McCollum, 48, placed a hidden camera in the bedroom on his neighbor’s teenage daughter.

However, despite recording her while she dressed and undressed, he was not required to register as a sex offender because the crime is only a misdemeanor.

18-year-old Madison Reed of Oregon, was being watched in her most private moments with a hidden camera, which was placed in her bedroom by McCollum while visiting her family.

Madison's parents found the hidden camera in their daughter's room.

McCollum pleaded guilty this week, to charges of burglary and invasion of privacy, which are only misdemeanors in the state.

Madison and her parents were devastated to learn that their neighbor had been watching their daughter for over 4 years.

Madison's father, Clark Reed, was a good friend of McCollum. Their families vacationed together at his home in Cannon Beach, which led to the opportunity for McCollum to secretly record Madison without her clothes.

As part of the plea deal with prosecutors, those charges related to the footage that McCollum took of Madison starting when she was just 13 years old, were dismissed.

Lawmakers are now looking to pass a new law that would make invasion of privacy a felony if the victim is under 18 years old.
