Sheriff: Worker put videos of FAU students in bathroom on porn sites


Published:

BOCA RATON – A former library employee at Florida Atlantic University has been accused of secretly making videos at a campus men’s room and posting some on Internet porn sites.

Campus police told The Palm Beach Post that 40-year-old Seth Thompson is facing charges of video voyeurism and disseminating such material. Palm Beach County jail records show Thompson was released Tuesday on $51,000 bail. Court records don’t show whether he has an attorney.

Police began investigating after a student told them in June he’d been taped while urinating and the 30-second clip later appeared on a porn site. Dozens of similar videos were later discovered.

Investigators say the videos were taken through peepholes as well as from under and over restroom stall doors and partitions.

FAU says Thompson resigned in August.
