Former New Jersey Teacher Pleads Guilty to Taking Upskirt Videos of High School Students

A former New Jersey high school chemistry teacher accused of using a camera hidden inside a coconut water drink container to take videos up the skirts of female students has pleaded guilty.

Investigators say 44-year-old Eric Howell placed the container in his briefcase to capture video as he walked near girls at Lenape High School in Medford.

He was suspended last year when someone noticed an apparent attempt to position his briefcase beneath a student's skirt. He was later fired. He had worked at the school since 2016.
