A Fort Hood officer will face jail time and dismissal from the Army for videotaping female soldiers without their permission at a California post.

A military judge sentenced Capt. Tyler F. Ho, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 36th Engineer Brigade, to seven years’ confinement, forfeiture of all pay and dismissal from the Army after a court-martial that began Tuesday.

Ho was convicted of 48 incidents of videotaping female soldiers without their permission. He also was convicted of nine counts of unlawfully viewing the private area of females and two counts of conduct unbecoming an officer.

The violations occurred at Fort Irwin, Calif., according to Fort Hood officials.

Sgt. 1st Class Michael Rosado also was sentenced this week in an unrelated case. Rosado, 1st Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, was sentenced Friday to 25 years in prison, reduction of rank to private, forfeiture of all pay and a dishonorable discharge. Rosado was found guilty of rape, aggravated assault, assault consummated by battery, child endangerment and disobeying a superior officer.
