The former athletic director at Palm Beach Gardens High School pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to video voyeurism and unlawful use of a two-way communication device.

Palm Beach Gardens police arrested William Weed in May 2017, accusing him of using a covert camera to obtain videos and images of a female juvenile.

Prosecutors added a third charge of sexual performance of a child that is included in the plea agreement.

Weed was sentenced 18 months in prison followed by eight years of sex offender probation. He had faced up to five years in prison.

Weed is not allowed to contact the victim, and a 10 p.m. curfew has been imposed. He must also complete sex offender treatment program.

Weed previously resigned from the Palm Beach County School District, effective June 5, 2017. The school district said Weed was reassigned prior to his arrest.

Detectives seized several electronic devices from Weed's home last February.
