Pasco County sheriff’s deputies arrested a Fivay High School teacher for video voyeurism on Friday.
Preliminary information indicates 38-year-old Thomas Kovack of Palm Harbor put a phone to record video in a closet in his classroom where he knew a 17-year-old girl was changing her shirt for a class photo.
The student noticed the phone and found a video of her teacher placing the phone in the closet and also herself in the video undressing.
She deleted the video and then reported what she found.
Deputies say Kovack later admitted to placing the phone in the closet.
He was arrested on one count of video voyeurism and booked into the Land O’ Lakes Detention Center. He has since bonded out.
