Ohio coach accused of taking photos of nude boys

JACKSON TOWNSHIP (AP) — A Jackson High School basketball coach faces charges that he hid cameras in a locker room and videotaped nude boys.

The (Canton) Repository reports that 46-year-old Scott D. Studer faces multiple felony counts. Authorities using a search warrant entered his home at 6:15 a.m. Wednesday and found images of nude boys on a DVD, a laptop computer and a flash drive.

Police say over an eight-year period cameras were hidden in the locker room and were turned toward the showers.

Studer resigned Wednesday from his coaching job and his position as a building aide for the Jackson Local School District.

About 50 people met with police and school officials Wednesday evening to discuss the case, some of them irate.

Studer had been a coach for more than two decades.
