BOONVILLE, Indiana — A former teacher at a southwestern Indiana middle school has pleaded guilty to charges that he secretly video recorded students and teachers in bathrooms and locker rooms.

Thirty-two-year-old Andrew Emmons entered the guilty plea during a Warrick County court hearing Monday to charges of attempted child exploitation and voyeurism.

Emmons was charged after a female faculty member at Boonville Middle School found a recording device in a staff bathroom in 2012. Police say investigators found video on his computer of female students changing clothes in a locker room.

Defense attorney Anthony Long tells the Evansville Courier & Press (http://bit.ly/PXPqZk ) that Emmons didn't want the students to have to testify in a trial and that he's been undergoing therapy for sexual addiction issues.

His sentencing is scheduled for May 22.
