Peeping Tom

I know most people won't be able to read this article, so I will summarize. A guy set up a video recorder in a girl's bathroom to spy on them showering. Now, I guess that is wrong and he was convicted and sentenced to six years in prison (which does seem a little excessive for peeping, but I digress). However, what worries me is that he was convicted because he told his therapist that he was spying on the girls, and the therapist told the police. Maybe I don't understand patient confidentiality. I don't see the immediate "danger to others" that should be requisite to forego confidentiality. I don't understand. Oh well, it won't be the last thing I don't understand.
