Albany Park man Elliott Nott, 41, has been charged with putting a motion-activated camera device in a bathroom at Ogden International School’s East Campus.

The accused worked as a music teacher at the school until shortly after the device was discovered, on Sept. 7th. According to a statement from Chicago Police, Nott has been charged with seven counts of unauthorized videotaping and one count of child pornography, all of which are felonies.

ABC 7 reports that Principal Michael Beyer assured parents that the device was not equipped to transmit images digitally. He also confirmed that security searched the entire building for additional devices and none were found.

Nott is scheduled to appear in bond court on Saturday.
