COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A 74-year-old retired central Ohio physician could face five years in prison after pleading no contest to charges that he had sexual contact with a 15-year-old boy. 

The Columbus Dispatch reports that Dr. Samuel Bracken Jr. entered the plea Tuesday. He was charged after video of him having sex with the boy was discovered on the home-security system at his house in the Columbus suburb of Dublin.

The retired obstetrician is scheduled to be sentenced April 10. In addition to a prison term, he'll have to register as a sex offender every six months.

Prosecutor Daniel Hawkins said the boy was the son of Bracken's then-cleaning lady. Police said Bracken admitted that he had sex with the boy and forgot about the cameras.
