SCOTUS quietly rejects appeal from the Ohio Supreme Court in the case of the Dayton peeper

Jack Torry for the Columbus Dispatch:

The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the sentence of an Ohio man who was convicted in 2012 of secretly videotaping an 11-year-old girl as she undressed in a bathroom to take a shower.
The justices, without comment Monday, rejected an appeal by Terry Lee Martin, 54, of Dayton who claimed the Ohio Supreme Court incorrectly applied Ohio law last year when it upheld his conviction…

  The Supreme Court voted 5-2 to affirm the 2012 felony conviction of Terry Lee Martin, of Dayton, for videotaping the girl.

  The court accepted the case in order to clarify whether the definition of “nudity” differs for those charged with possessing materials with nude children from those charged with creating non-pornographic materials with child nudity.
