ONTARIO, Canada – As lawmakers ponder a bill in the U.S. that would make cell phone video voyeurism punishable by law, a young Canadian man has been sentenced to jail time for taking pictures of his underage girlfriend with his cell phone and posting them on the Internet.

The man, 20-year-old Matthew Kalijarvi, took nude photos of his then-girlfriend when she was 17 years old, which according to U.S. and Canadian law is under the legal age limit for being portrayed in sexually explicit photos.

The case was brought to the attention of police after a friend of the girl saw the nude pictures on the Internet and informed local police.

Kalijarvi was sentenced to six months in jail this week for producing and distributing child porn. According to reports, he pleaded guilty to all charges, which included committing mischief and criminal harassment.

The sentence also includes two years of probation during which Kalijarvi will be prohibited from using a cell phone. Kalijarvi already served one month in jail prior to his sentencing.

A federal panel on May 13 voted to approve the Video Voyeurism Prevention Act, which outlaws "upskirt" photos and other forms of voyeurism made possible by cell phone cameras and other portable technology.

The Video Voyeurism Prevention Act would prohibit taking covert pictures in locker rooms, bedrooms and other places where people have a reasonable expectation of privacy. Violators would face fines and up to a year in prison under the law.
