Police: Ex-Ind. teacher secretly filmed students

By

BOONVILLE, Ind. -- A former southern Indiana teacher facing voyeurism charges allegedly had secretly recorded video footage of 16 female students stored on his computer.

Thirty-one-year-old Andrew Emmons of Boonville was arrested Friday on 16 counts of child exploitation and 10 counts of voyeurism. He's being held at the Warrick County Jail on a $14,400 bond.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports the former Boonville Middle School teacher was arrested in September after a female teacher found a recording device in a school staff bathroom. He resigned in October.

Court documents allege Emmons secretly recorded 13- and 14-year-old female students, women faculty members and his wife and her female relatives.

Police say they recovered video footage of 16 students from Emmons' computer showing the students changing clothes in a locker room.
