Troup pleads guilty to exploitation charges

A former Penn High School custodian accused of planting a camera in the boys locker room and using it to record pornography has pleaded guilty to federal charges.

Robert Troup entered the guilty plea for Felony Sexual Exploitation of Children in court. Earlier this year federal prosecutors said Troup took 20 videos with the camera discovered in the locker room. The videos included 43 male students either in the shower or walking in front of the planted camera.

Other images showing Troup wearing his employee ID badge in front of the camera were collected and used as evidence in the case. Troup is set to be sentenced on February 7, 2013.
