Bond set at 15k for student accused locker room videotaping

A student is free on $15,000 after a video recording device was found in the boys’ locker room of a suburban high school.

17-year-old Luke Patrick Gildea is charged as an adult with two felony counts of unauthorized video recording.

Gildea faces up to five years in prison if convicted.

A student at Crystal Lake Central High School discovered a pinhole camera dangling from inside the boys locker room around 7 a.m. Thursday.  Police were called. The camera was seized and images were reviewed.  A recording of a student under the age of 18 found on the camera, prosecutors say.

The time stamp on the recordings somehow led detectives to Gildea, a student at the school. Authorities say he confessed to the crime.

The recording device had no wireless transmission capabilities. No images were being sent or received as a result.

The school told parents they searched all locker rooms and bathrooms at Crystal Lake Central as well as at all high schools in the district as part of their investigation.

Police believe Gildea was working alone.

    I know friends who go to central and it's scary to know something like this happened in our district. But I'm glad it's going to be taken care of, so none of this can happen at central,south,prairie ridge or any schools.

    I agree, this is silly. Probably a prank or something else that everyone is blowing way out of proportion.

    The same number of homophobic brats who are too insecure to just accept the world for how it is. You cant change it. The same thing can happen in the girls bathroom then what would you say? Couldnt blame that on the gays.
