    Bellingham Teacher Arrested for Allegedly Recording Student in Faculty Bathroom

    A teacher in Bellingham, Massachusetts has been arrested two weeks after he was placed on leave for allegedly recording a student in a faculty bathroom, according to police. Scott McDonald, 38, is charged with photographing the sexual or intimate parts of a child and posing or exhibiting a child in a sexual act. He was released on $1,000 bail and is expected to appear in court on Monday. Bellingham School Superintendent Peter Marano said last week that the teacher was placed on administrative leave on Nov. 9 as soon as the school district received the complaint. He sent a note ...



    "It appeared it was set up being disguised behind something," Bellingham Police Lt. Kevin Ranieri said of the alleged recording last week. "A lot of people are surprised when they heard of it. He's been there a long time and he's well-liked by many."

    Authorities said a 14-year-old male student at Bellingham Memorial Middle School was in a faculty bathroom on Nov. 9 when that student noticed a cell phone on top of a locker that looked out of place. The bathroom is described as a coach's bathroom in a locker room area.

    "Somehow he was able to see this and it didn't look right to him, it was behind like a box in there and he saw it and he couldn’t figure out why it was up there and sure enough it was a phone," Ranieri said.

    After the student reported it to the school resource officer, McDonald's cell phone was confiscated.


    The school district said it is conducting its own investigation. "This individual was immediately removed from the classroom when the district learned of the alleged conduct and we immediately contacted the police. We continue to remain committed to our efforts to ensure a safe learning environment for all students. Student safety is our highest priority," Marano said in a statement last week. The conditions of McDonald's release say that he is to have no contact with anyone under 18 or any potential witnesses, cannot possess any device with a camera or use the internet and that he must remain with ...

    Police: Bellingham teacher used ‘elaborate’ plan to record boy using faculty bathroom

    21 November 2018


    A Bellingham teacher who was placed on administrative leave last week for allegedly recording a student in a faculty bathroom is facing criminal charges after investigators say he devised an “elaborate” plan to obtain nude photos of the victim. Scott McDonald, 38, will be arraigned next week in Milford District Court on charges including photographing sexual intimate parts of child and posing a child in a sexual act-pose/exhibit, officials said. McDonald, a longtime teacher and baseball coach, was immediately removed from Bellingham Memorial Middle School after a complaint received on Nov. 9 stated that a male student had been recorded, ...



    The 14-year-old student tipped off school officials after spotting a camera planted in a box on a locker, prompting an investigation, police said.

    When investigators began looking into the claim, they found the box and McDonald’s iPhone, both of which matched the student’s description, according to court documents.

    Authorities allege that McDonald would ask the student to retrieve binders from his car, and in exchange, he would let the boy use the faculty bathroom, which he described as “cleaner” than other restrooms.

    On multiple occasions, the student opened the box and found recordings of himself on McDonald’s iPhone, the documents said.


    Authorities seized the phone and found several “suspicious videos” stored in a Google photos app, according to investigators. One image that was recovered allegedly showed the boy in the faculty bathroom with his genitals exposed.


    An arrest warrant was issued for McDonald after investigators concluded that he used “an elaborate plan to entice, coerce and encourage (the boy) into using the faculty bathroom for the purpose of secretly recording him using the bathroom to obtain nude pictures.” McDonald was later found sitting in his car in a parking lot in Blackstone with a letter that said he could “no longer live with the demons that exist in his head,” according to police. He was then taken into custody. McDonald has since posted bail. He is due in court on Monday morning. Bellingham Public Schools released ...
