Washington Teacher Caught Taking Upskirt Video Of Young Student

A Washington high school teacher is accused of taking an upskirt video of one of his students, and photos taken by other students appear to prove it. Opposing Views reports that the teacher’s name has not been revealed since he hasn’t been charged with a crime yet, but the details of this developing case are not in his favor.

At least one student at Evergreen High School in Vancouver, Washington witnessed the male teacher recording under a table while talking to a female student. The teacher was using his cellphone to shoot what was an apparent upskirt video without the consent or knowledge of the 14-year-old female student that he had approached in order to “discuss an assignment.”

The 14-year-old female student believes that the teacher was filming up her skirt while he talked to her about an assignment. She noted that he was leaning over awkwardly and behaving strangely in comments she made to media reporters.

“I felt disgusted and grossed out. And he was leaning awkwardly, like sitting weird, and he kept clearing his throat and grunting while he was looking down.”

It was thanks to the young high schooler’s peers that she was alerted to his behavior. After the teacher wasn’t around her, they approached her with photos they had taken of him holding his phone under the table while he talked to her. The students then told school faculty at the office.

KPTV News 12 reports that police in Vancouver are investigating the teacher for voyeurism. The Evergreen High School is also handling the situation by sending the teacher home on suspension while the investigation takes place. They’ve also sent a letter out to parents, notifying them of the potential sexual misconduct that allegedly occurred. Meanwhile, the mother of the victimized 14-year-old girl has pulled her daughter out of school. She also shared some strong words about the teacher accused of filming the upskirt video.

“That’s something a pedophile does. It’s not normal.”

This is certainly an anger-inducing story, but it’s also not the only time this kind if incident has taken place in a public school. In 2008, a California teacher admitted to filming students in the girls’ bathroom next to his classroom. A Houston, Texas teacher admitted to doing the same thing in 2010. This is also something that affects teachers. In 2014, students in Sydney, Australia were caught filming upskirt videos of their teachers before sharing images of it on Facebook.
