15-year term in Ohio's nude locker-room video case

CANTON, Ohio (AP) -- A judge has handed down a 15-year prison term to a former Ohio high school basketball coach who pleaded guilty to videotaping boys showering in the locker room over an eight-year period.

Judge Frank Forchione (for-SHOH'-nee) in Canton sentenced 46-year-old Scott Studer after he pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to an eight-count indictment.

The judge also ordered Studer to pay a $5,000 fine to be directed to the Newtown, Conn., community, scene of last week's school shooting rampage.

At least 74 boys have been identified on the secretly recorded videotapes made at Jackson High School near Canton. The judge ordered the tapes destroyed.

Studer was arrested in November after investigators searched his home and found nude images on a DVD, a computer and a flash drive.
