Former Floyd Co. Assistant Principal Arrested for Voyeurism

ISP says 65-year-old Paul Raake used a hidden camera to spy on boys in the locker room at Scribner Middle School.

FLOYD COUNTY, Ind. -- The former assistant principal of a Floyd County middle school was arrested Tuesday for felony voyeurism.

Indiana State Police say Raake, 65, placed a hidden camera in the boys' locker room at Nathaniel Scribner Middle School in New Albany, where he once worked.

The camera was discovered by a student and reported to Scribner Prinicpal Dr. Keith Bush in November 2016. The Indiana State Police and New Albany Police Department began their investigation the following month.  

Police say it's unclear how long the camera was in the locker room before it was discovered.

Detectives examined three computers Raake used while working at the school and found photographs "that were of concern" on one of them. At least one photo showed a male student dressing or undressing inside the locker room, ISP said Tuesday. 

Raake is now in the Floyd County Jail, awaiting his first court date. A date for his arraingment has not been announced.
