PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- An airline pilot who used his cell phone to take photos up a teenager's skirt at Philadelphia International Airport has pleaded guilty to invasion of privacy.
US Airways pilot Joseph Pereira was sentenced Tuesday in Philadelphia Family Court to one year of probation. He will be evaluated for a sex offender treatment program.
Authorities say Pereira used his cell phone to take photos under the skirt of a 15-year-old girl on June 24.
US Airways spokesman Morgan Durrant says the 55-year-old pilot from Wexford, Pa., is suspended.
Pereira earlier resigned as a girls softball coach at North Allegheny High School, near Pittsburgh. School officials said there have been no other complaints about Pereira in 13 years of coaching.
