LOUDONVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Prosecutors say a former Ohio teacher has been arrested for secretly recording kindergarten students in a school bathroom.

Ashland County Prosecutor Chris Tunnell says 32-year-old Elliot Gornall hung a pinpoint spy camera in a bathroom at the elementary school in Loudonville, about 70 miles northeast of Columbus.

Officials say Gornall was arrested Friday. He is expected to appear in court Monday to face felony charges.

Gornall resigned last year after being charged with felony drug possession. The new charges follow an examination of Gornall’s personal computer by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

Officials say Gornall had worked in the district for four years following clean background checks.

A message left for Gornall’s attorney was not immediately returned Saturday.
