    A Fredericksburg photographer will spend more  than two years behind bars for taking nude pictures of clients without their  consent.
     
    Craig Stephen Faulkner was sentenced Monday on felony charges of possession of child pornography and filming a minor nude, 18 misdemeanor charges of  unlawful filming and one misdemeanor count of having no business license.
     
    The Free Lance-Star reports that Fredericksburg  Circuit Court Judge Gordon Willis sentenced Faulkner to a total 24 years, and then suspended all but 30 months.
     
    The investigation began in January 2011 when two women told police about a hidden camera in a changing room at Faulkner's home.

    The Free Lance-Star reports in January, one of the women, a 23-year-old who worked at the restaurant Hooters, had Faulkner photograph her in a bikini for a possible calendar.  While changing, the woman said she found a camera on a tripod with a light on hidden in a pile of clothes.

    Prosecutor Travis Bird says Faulkner had secretly filmed women for years. He says police found more than 20 victims.
