GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A Green Bay high school counselor was charged Monday with secretly videotaping 15 people in a school bathroom, including one student.

Todd Naze, 54, appeared in court, where his $50,000 bond was continued.

According to the complaint, Naze set up an iPod in the staff bathroom at Southwest High School and taped sporadically from August 2016 until about April or May of 2018, when his wife found the files and confronted him. Naze stopped filming then, WLUK-TV reported.

The complaint says Naze said he took the images of people at work who did not respect him. One of the victims is a former student, who would have been 17 at the time.

Southwest sent a letter to staff and students’ families on Monday, asking anyone who believes they may have been a victim and has not been contacted by police to fill out a form.

Online court records do not list an attorney who could comment on Naze’s behalf. He is due back in court Feb. 3.
