Ex-school official gets jail after locker room camera found

June 6, 2018

A former vice principal of a New Albany middle school has been ordered to serve a year in jail after pleading guilty to a voyeurism charge after authorities linked him to a camera found inside the boys locker room.

Paul Raake was given the punishment Monday after entering the plea in the case in Floyd County Superior Court.

Police said an investigation began in the fall of 2016 after a student at Scribner Middle School in New Albany found the camera inside a locker. Police said investigators found photographs on computers used by Raake, one of which showed a male student dressing or undressing.

Raake left his job at the school in late 2016 and he was charged in the case in the fall of 2017.
