LOUDONVILLE, Ohio — A teacher in Ohio faces up to 184 years in prison after police said he filmed students in his kindergarten class while they used the bathroom, according to WEWS.

Elliot Gornall, 32, resigned from his teaching position in 2014 after he was arrested for felony drug possession.

Now he’s facing 52 charges for pandering after the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation went through his personal computer.

“Although these children were unaware they were being secretly filmed by a pinpoint spy camera,” Prosecuting Attorney Tunnell told WEWS. “The thought that a previously trusted kindergarten teacher would take advantage of young children in this way is horrifying.”

The prosecutor said they found the pinpoint camera hanging on a clip in the bathroom.
