CANTON, Ohio – A former Ohio high school basketball coach who pleaded guilty to videotaping boys in a locker room shower for years has been sentenced to 15 years in prison — and must give $5,000 to the Connecticut community where a gunman killed 26 people.
Scott Studer pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to an eight-count indictment.
In addition to prison, Judge Frank Forchione (for-SHOH'-nee) in Canton ordered that Studer's fine be directed to Newtown, Conn., scene of last week's school shooting rampage. The judge didn't specify the fund that should get the 46-year-old's fine.
At least 74 boys have been identified on the secretly recorded videotapes made over the span of eight years at Jackson High School near Canton. The judge ordered the tapes destroyed.
