The teacher is accused of leaving a recording device in a girl’s changing room

A special education teacher in Baltimore has been arrested on charges of voyeurism involving minors.

According to CBS Baltimore, Christopher R. Clark, 46, has been charged with prurient intent after he allegedly recording underage students getting dressed in a school classroom.

Authorities have accused Clark of leaving his cell phone recording in a room at Milford Mill Academy where female students were changing clothes. Police told CBS Baltimore that one of the students discovered the phone and brought it to a teacher. Police said they believe Clark allegedly conducted this surreptitious recording on at least one other occasion.

Mychael Dickerson, spokesman for Baltimore County Public Schools, addressed the allegations in a statement.

The safety of our more than 112,000 students is the top priority for Baltimore County Public schools. Once Milford Mill Academy administrators became aware of the alleged incident they took immediate and appropriate action. We continue to work with law enforcement and because this is an ongoing investigation and personnel matter we cannot provide any additional comment.

Clark is no longer employed at Milford Mill Academy. Anyone with additional information is urged to call Baltimore police at (410) 307-2020.
