CLINTON, Ohio-- A 40-year-old man is facing charges after investigators say he exposed himself to students on a field trip.

The Summit County Sheriff's Office was notified of the incident at Camp Y-Noah Jan. 25. It allegedly happened in September.

Scott J. Wuensch, of Grafton, was a chaperone on the Midview East Intermediate School field trip to the camp in Clinton. According to the sheriff's office, he exposed himself, videoed a simulated sex act and made offensive gestures during the trip. Nine victims were involved.

Wuensch was charged with public indecency, disseminating matter harmful to juveniles and disorderly conduct.

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office said Wuensch is not an employed by the school. He’s the parent of a student.

The Midview School District said parent volunteers must pass a Bureau of Criminal Investigation and FBI background checks. Wuensch was "properly vetted."

“We will continue to review our parent volunteer procedures and will make recommendations to ensure the highest level of safety for our students, as their safety is our top priority,” said Midview Superintendent Dr. Bruce Willingham in a news release on Tuesday.

Superintendent of Avon Lake City Schools Bob Scott said Wuensch is the technology director for the district and has worked there for 13 years. He's been suspended from his position. Superintendent Scott said he is shocked by the allegations and, "never had an inkling of anything like this."
