Prosecutors: Teacher watched film of students in bathroom on screen at his desk

December 3rd, 2009 by

HOUSTON – A Houston teacher accused of secretly taping a female student in a school bathroom appeared in court Wednesday morning on a felony charge of improper photography.
Craig McDonald teaches American history and government at the Raul Yzaguirre School for Success, a charter school in southeast Houston.
Investigators allege McDonald installed video cameras in fake smoke detectors in the girls’ restroom at the school.
Prosecutors said the students were the ones who raised concerns about McDonald.
“The way the case came forward is, several students noticed that every time a female student would go to the bathroom, he would become very distracted and he would immediately start focusing on a small screen that he had basically installed right next to his desk,” prosecutor Eric Devlin said.
“There are two sides to every story. We have to begin investigating to see what evidence – if any evidence – there is,” McDonald’s attorney, Eric Davis, said.
McDonald was out of jail Wednesday on $2,000 bond.
He’s been suspended from his job pending the outcome of the investigation.
