GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A former North Carolina A&T student faces charges of secret peeping and sexual battery on a current student.

Arrest warrants show the incident happened on April 4 at Cooper Hall. The secret peeping and video recording happened "while the person was taking a shower" and the sexual battery occurred while the victim was sleeping.

Cooper Hall is an all-male dormitory.

Karl Gregory Weir is charged with secret peeping with a photographic device and sexual battery. Weir's student status was removed in June, according to school officials.

At Weir’s bond hearing Tuesday afternoon, Judge Bill Davis reduced Weir’s bond from $250,000 to $100,000.

In the explanation of the case to Davis, court officials said that a student found a SIM card on the bathroom floor inside Cooper Hall in April.

On that card, investigators discovered several videos of male NC A&T male students showering  without their knowledge.

Arrest warrants state the sexual battery charge includes video of Weir “grabbing and fondling” the victim.

Wier was arrested on Sept. 25 after further investigation into those recordings that also included several videos of sleeping male children and acts of oral sex.

Court officials said the oldest male victim is age 13.

Based on the number of videos and minors victimized, the recent September arrest adds 15 charges; ten charges of peeping using a photographic imaging device, one count of second-degree forced sexual offense and four counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Investigators are not sure where those crimes involving minors were recorded.

Originally seized by North Carolina A&T State University Campus Police, investigators are sorting through the confiscated SIM card, jump drive, Apple iPhone 7 and Alienware laptop computer for evidence.

Weir will appear in court again on Nov. 7.
