Elkhart Middle School Coach Admits To Planting Video Tape In Locker Room

A shocking admission from an Elkhart middle school teacher and wrestling coach at the center of a hidden camera in the locker-room case.

<p style=”font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; line-height: 18px;”>33 year-old Jim Iannarelli has confessed to police he’s been recording students in a locker room shower for four years. New details released in court documents reveal an initial video of boys showering in a West Side locker-room was discovered by a wrestler who was playing a game on Iannarelli’s iPad late last month.

The boy showed a group of friends. About a week later some students were on Iannarelli's iPad again and saw another video which showed Iannarelli hiding the device in a locker at West Side Middle School.

The Elkhart Truth reports about 10 minutes into the video, students were seen entering the locker room, undressing and showering. After getting a search warrant for the iPad, police found video of three male West Side students, ages 12, 13 and 14, naked in the shower.

Iannarelli also admitted to looking at child pornography on his home computer.

He remains in jail with bond set at $100,000.
