HALIFAX -- The Crown is seeking a six-year prison term for a man found guilty of break and enter in a case that alarmed many residents of south-end Halifax.

Barry Edward Sinclair was charged with breaking into two apartments in September 2011 and watching women sleep.

Sinclair was found guilty last November in Nova Scotia Supreme Court of breaking into one of the two homes but not guilty of illegally entering the other home.

He was also acquitted of five counts of voyeurism related to a video seized from his home of women undressing in their apartments.

A forensic and clinical psychologist who testified on behalf of the Crown told the court today that she conducted a risk assessment of Sinclair and concluded he was a moderate to high risk to reoffend.

Sinclair's lawyer, Luke Craggs, has asked for an 18-month prison sentence with credit for 12 months in custody.

Judge Michael Wood is expected to deliver his sentencing decision later today.
