EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. -- A southern Illinois math teacher already accused of videotaping girls in a high school locker room and motel bathroom now faces federal charges.

Federal prosecutors have charged 43-year-old Timothy Going of Fairfield with attempted sexual exploitation of a minor and possession of visual depictions of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

St. Clair prosecutors charged Going last month with four counts related to the videotaping girls ages 15 to 18 last November in the bathroom of a Super 8 motel in Fairview Heights, near St. Louis.

Going already was charged in Wayne County with illegally placing a video camera in the girls' locker room at Fairfield Community High School, where he taught and coached cross country.

Going is suspended with pay.

Messages left Thursday with his attorney weren't returned.
