Eleven girls captured on video, ages 13-17.
One week after turning in his resignation from the Booneville School District, teacher/coach Mark Aaron Smith was formally charged with 11 counts of video voyeurism.
Smith, 39, stands accused of placing a cellular phone in record mode, inside a soap dispenser in a girls bathroom inside the fieldhouse on the Booneville High School campus.
After the phone was discovered, according to an arrest warrant affidavit, Smith confirmed the phone was his and gave school officials the pass-code but told them he had no knowledge of how the phone came to be in the girls bathroom.
School officials disagreed and turned the phone over to police investigators who believe they identified Smith as the person placing the phone in the soap dispenser. Smith is also believed to have downloaded a video of the same bathroom to his school computer.
According to the affidavit, captured on the video on the phone were 11 girls, ages 13 to 17, who were changing clothes.
In his single sentence resignation letter, Smith, who was placed on administrative leave after the phone was found, set a Sept. 22 effective date for his resignation.
