MOSCOW, Idaho — A former Castleford High School teacher has been sentenced to 45 days in jail and five years of probation for secretly videotaping high school girls who showered in his hotel bathroom during an FFA convention in Moscow.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reported that 34-year-old Roger Wells of Buhl was charged with video voyeurism in December after the boyfriend of one of the girls found a camera in a coffee packet on the bathroom counter last June.

Wells’ plea agreement requires him to complete sex offender treatment.

Latah County Deputy Prosecutor Michelle Evans told 2nd District Judge John Stegner on Monday that Wells acknowledged videotaping an adult woman in the past and said he has tried to minimize his crime and shows reluctance toward treatment.
