One new article link has been added to our Related News page. WSFA published an article titled Official: Teacher secretly taped kindergartners in bathroom.

An Ohio teacher secretly recorded his kindergarten students using a tiny spy camera hung inside his classroom’s bathroom, prosecutors said Saturday.

Dozens of videos of students were found on the computer of Elliot Gornall, 32, a former teacher at the elementary school in Loudonville who resigned last year after being charged in another case, Ashland County Prosecutor Chris Tunnell said.

“The thought that a previously trusted kindergarten teacher would take advantage of young children in this way is horrifying,” Tunnell said in a statement announcing the charges.

Gornall faces 25 felony charges: 23 counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance and two counts of attempting the same crime. Twenty-five kindergartners were recorded, Tunnell said.

All of the accused are women. In fact, about one-third of the cases of possibly inappropriate relationships investigated by Alabama education officials in 2013 involved women.

“It may not be happening more, but now there’s more punishment,” said Josh Klapow, a clinical psychologist and associate professor at UAB’s School of Public Health. “We don’t know those incidents that aren’t being caught and aren’t being reported.”

Social media, authorities say, helps to fuel the fire.
