Custodian charged for videotaping girls

LOS ANGELES, May 22 (UPI) -- A California school custodian is facing criminal charges for allegedly videotaping 18 female students while they were in the locker room, police said.

Hilario Hernandez Medina, 39, was taken into police custody Monday and charged with possession and control of child pornography, said Steve Whitmore, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

A worker at Oaks Christian School in Westlake Village last week stumbled across a camera that had "inappropriate images" of females on it, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.

Jeffrey H. Woodcock, headmaster of the grades 6-12 school, said the situation was "a 'Peeping Tom' incident involving a video camera and the Girls' Locker Room."

Medina pleaded not guilty to the accusations and was held Thursday on $160,000 bail, the Times said. A hearing is set for June 9 in Van Nuys Superior Court.
