A former Nashville TSA agent said he became so obsessed with a woman that he took hidden videos of her in an airport bathroom and broke into her house five times.

Daniel Boykin, 33, was sentenced to six months in jail on Thursday, and Judge Randall Wyatt advised the former agent to continue to get counseling after he is released from six months of jail, The Tennessean reports.

Included in the sentence were more than 5 years of probation and GPS monitoring.

Prosecutors said Boykin had amassed 92 videos of the victim, including 29 that were captured from a bathroom stall at Nashville International Airport.

“This was one of the worst cases I have seen in terms of invading somebody’s privacy in their most intimate moments and the most secure place, her home,” former Metro Police Detective Andrew Vallee told The Tennessean on Thursday.

Sometimes there’s a fine line between an innocent crush and something darker.

And sometimes it’s pretty black and white.

In a case of the latter, Moses Antonio Shepard, 47, of Tucson, had been showering unwanted attention on a woman he met in an NYC health club for nearly 20 years, according to an FBI press release. He was sentenced Monday to 8 years and 4 months in federal prison for making his dreams into her nightmares.

Convicted on two counts of interstate stalking for unwanted emails, letters, phone calls, and visits, Shephard will also have three years supervised release at the end of the sentence.

The FBI emphasizes “Stalking is a serious, potentially life-threatening crime.” said Acting U.S. Attorney Ann Birmingham Scheel in a statement.  “A stalker not only permanently changes the life of his victim, but he also affects the victim’s family, friends, and co-workers.”
