A professor was caught with a camera pen that contained pornographic images of his students.
Don A. Samuelson was arrested by police at the University of Florida. He was charged with two counts of video voyeurism.
(Voyeurism is the sexual interest in or practice of spying on people engaged in intimate behaviors, such as undressing, sexual activity, or other actions usually considered to be of a private nature.)
Police said that on different occasions he used his camera pen to record under the shirts of students. The professor pointed the pen to the cleavage of the victim and recorded them.
The professor was caught when he used the camera pen up the skirt of a student, who realized she was being recorded and reported him to the authorities. Campus police recovered several pornographic images on the camera pen, and the professor reportedly admitted it was his.
In other electronic devices that belonged to professor Samuelson, police recovered videos of women, who were working in the lab and of a woman, who met with him in his office.
Samuelson told investigators he was trying to gather evidence that one of the women did not wear underwear because he thought it was inappropriate.
"He was placed on administrative leave as soon as the university learned of the charges against him, and he is prohibited to be on campus," Janine Sikes Assistant Vice President of Media Relations University of Florida said.
