Girl, 13, Disciplined After Allegedly Recording Video In Locker Room
MURRIETA (CBS) — A seventh grade student at Shivela Middle School has been disciplined after allegedly recording a video in the girl’s locker room while some of her classmates were changing.
School District spokeswoman Karen Parris told the Riverside Press-Enterprise that about 25 to 30 students were captured on video, most of which were fully-clothed. According to Parris, some of the students were aware they were being recorded.
The incident, which occurred Tuesday, was reported to school officials Wednesday and was investigated by Murrieta police.
Police Lt. Tony Conrad told the newspaper the unidentified student won’t be charged with a crime because it’s not believed she was deliberately recording other students. An investigation revealed that she was only intending to record her friend, Conrad added.
Authorities said none of the footage was believed to have been transmitted to other people.
Students are allowed to carry cell phones on campus for emergency use but the student handbook prohibits them from recording videos in locker rooms, Parris added.
