Justin Henderson said Ronan was either with his partner or recording navy graduation in his spare bedroom alone, editing the tape, focusing on explicit content, and then
It is said that hundreds of gay porn images were also found on Ronan's home computer. "Dr.
Ronan violated the trust of his naval officer sponsor, "Henderson said to a jury of six naval officers at the Washington Naval base.
Navy investigators found a purifier with a camera in the attic of the Annapolis residence in South Carolina.
The system is often referred to as a "nanny camera" and is usually used to monitor the nanny in secret.
Ronan, designated by the college as a naval student sponsor, received about a dozen students under the program, and naval students relaxed in private homes off campus on weekends.
Ronan's lawyer, William Ferris, said Ronan did not make a video tape and he bought the air purifier with his camera just to check if his naval officer sponsor had a party while he was away
The tapes could be the result of two attempts to withdraw money from Ronan, filris said.
The man, who was expelled from the college in January, faces the prospect of having to repay the government's thousands of dollars in education costs.
He had asked Ronan for money but was refused.
"This is a plan to extort money from Mr.
There's something wrong with Ronan, "said Ferris.
The lawyer also said that naval officers who had access to Ronan's home computer might be responsible for the pornographic content on his hard drive.
Earlier this month, the military judge hearing the case ruled that prosecutors could use pornographic content in their case, which Henderson described as images of "sports youth" and stills in pornographic videos.
Prosecutors say the photos show the motivation of the Navy soldiers recorded by Ronan.
Ferris said the photos had nothing to do with the case.
The case is expected to last two weeks.
