FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -

A fired Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission agent has been sentenced to six months in jail for improper recording of a female relative at a Fort Worth home.
    
A judge in Fort Worth sentenced 51-year-old Martin Herrmann, who was fired by the TABC in November 2012 amid the investigation.
    
Hermann in August pleaded guilty to three charges of improper photography and visual recording. Investigators say recording devices were found in a bathroom and the 24-year-old woman's bedroom.
    
Herrmann on Dec. 5 was also fined $500 and ordered to undergo sex offender counseling.

Herrmann formerly worked in the Midland-Odessa area. He was a TABC enforcement agent in Arlington at the time of his arrest. He joined the agency in 2005.
    
An attorney for Herrmann declined comment.
