SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The school custodian accused of hiding a camera in a Penn Harris Madison High School Locker Room appeared in court for the first time on Monday.
Robert Troup told the judge he plans on hiring a private attorney, and waved the formal reading of his charges.
Troup faces three counts of voyeurism after two students found a camera inside a locker in the boy’s swim locker room.
The SD card from the camera has twenty recordings from three different dates from December 27, 2010, January 3, 2011, and January 12, 2011.
Court documents said the video shows “images of individuals disrobing and in states of nudity inside the shower area as well as in the locker room area itself.”
Documents said it also shows images of a man adjusting the camera in the early morning hours, which the assistant principal and custodial manager identify as Troup.
Troup had no comment for ABC 57 as he left the courtroom and will appear in court again on December 15th at 9 a.m.
Penn High School confirmed that it terminated Troup as of Monday, but the school chose not to make any comment on camera.
