ASHLAND, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio teacher accused of secretly recording his kindergarten students using the bathroom is due in court.

Thirty-two-year-old Elliot Gornall was indicted last week on nearly 150 additional charges of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material and pandering obscenity involving a minor.

His arraignment is scheduled for Friday morning.

Authorities say Gornall recorded 25 of his students using a tiny spy camera that he installed in a bathroom next to his classroom in Loudonville, about 80 miles south of Cleveland.

Ashland County Prosecutor Christopher Tunnell had said the new charges follow investigators’ continued analysis of Gornall’s computer and other equipment. They came after an initial complaint was filed against him in March.
