MURRAY, Ky. (AP) — A former Kentucky teacher has admitted to filming students in a high school bathroom.

The Murray Ledger & Times reported that 54-year-old Mark Allen Boggess pleaded guilty Tuesday in Calloway Circuit Court to eight counts of possessing matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and eight counts of voyeurism.

Police arrested Boggess last year after staff at Murray High School reported finding a recording device set up in the bathroom of the nurse's station.

Police said the video recorder captured the person putting the device in place. Boggess was a teacher and track coach at the school and resigned after his arrest.
