SAN ANTONIO - A Texas father is accused of secretly viewing his 16-year-old stepdaughter in her bedroom.
Bexar County deputies say the man was spying on the girl through a hidden camera he installed in her TV.
Investigators say they don't know how long the man's been spying on his stepdaughter in her most intimate moments.
Deputies say 52-year-old David Alan Kimbrough was secretly watching his 16-year-old stepdaughter.
The teenager told deputies she'd first changed her clothes to clean out her car Saturday.
Then she went into a workshop behind the house to get a vacuum cleaner.
That's when officers say she noticed a TV monitor on picking up images from her bedroom.
They say her stepdad rushed in and quickly turned off that TV set.
Deputies say Kimbrough was spying on the girl through a tiny camera he installed in another TV facing the girl's bed.
According to deputies, the girl took the TV from her bedroom, back to the workshop, and took it apart.
They say that's when she found wires leading to a pinhole camera.
Kimbrough is charged with improper photography of a minor child.
He posted $2,000 bond and was out of jail on Monday night.
Deputies say it's still unclear whether Kimbrough recorded the teen.
They say if he did, he could face additional charges for child pornography.
