Is it possible that your child is the innocent victim of video voyeurism while they are changing clothes at school?
Video voyeurism is exactly what a Hillsborough county school teacher has been charged with.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office, Mark William Ackett, 49, a teacher at Bloomingdale Senior High School had placed hidden cameras in a designated changing area of a “fashion class” being given at the school.
Fortunately, a student happen to notice the electronic recording device in the area she was changing, and immediately reported it to school officials. The sheriffs office said that Ackett admitted that he had intentionally set up the cameras for purposes of viewing the student in various stages of undress.
Ackett, who has since resigned, had worked with the school district since 1991 and has been a teacher at Bloomingdale High since January of 2017. See Ackett’s booking photo HERE.
Detectives on the case are still investigating the matter to find out if there are any other victims.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at 813-247-8200.
