A Wilmington man was recently convicted of secretly taking photos of a child during church services.

Duncan Hart Wilkie, 37, was found guilty last week of two counts of possessing photos that were obtained by using a camera to secretly peep on a minor, according to District Attorney Ben David. Wilkie was found not guilty of four counts of secret peeping.

Wilkie was charged with secretly peeping on a child during church services at Lifepoint Church on South College Road in 2011, David said. At the time, he was a member of the church and worked on the church’s security team.

“The defendant was found guilty of possessing two photographs that were taken underneath the dress of a minor during church services at the Lifepoint Church,” David said.

Superior Court Judge J.D. Hockenbury sentenced Wilkie six to eight months in prison, which was suspended, and ordered him to serve three years of probation.
