Sex of­fender sen­tenced for tak­ing lewd photo

The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Tom McGhee

A man who thrust a cam­era un­der a woman’s skirt at a Bron­cos game as she waited for her hus­band out­side a bath­room was sen­tenced Mon­day to eight years of in­ten­sive sex of­fender pro­ba­tion and 30 days in jail.

Ja­cob Magee, 35, pleaded guilty in April to one count of in­va­sion of pri­vacy for sex­ual grat­i­fi­ca­tion, a Class 6 felony.

Magee was al­ready a reg­is­tered sex of­fender when the in­ci­dent took place in Oc­to­ber. The sen­tence re­quires him to reg­is­ter as a sex of­fender for life. He re­ceived credit for three days in jail he al­ready has served.

The woman was wait­ing for her hus­band when she felt her skirt move, “and looked down to see the sus­pect pulling his cam­era phone from un­der her skirt,” ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port.

Magee, who has 9-yearold twins, told Judge Wil­liam D. Rob­bins that he was “truly sorry” for his ac­tions.

“All I want to do is be there for my wife and kids,” he said. “We love each other very much.”

But the judge ques­tioned that sen­ti­ment.

“You just told me how much you and your fam­ily love each other,” Rob­bins said. “You haven’t com­mented on this woman and the in­va­sion of her pri­vacy.”

In­ves­ti­ga­tors iden­ti­fied Magee af­ter watch­ing video footage of the in­ci­dent that showed a pic­ture be­ing taken by a man with a blade-type pros­thetic leg who was wear­ing a Von Miller jersey.
