Former Teacher Pleads Guilty to Videotaping

By Angela Hatton

Mayfield, KY – A one-time teacher in western Kentucky has pleaded guilty to charges of eavesdropping and tampering with physical evidence. Accusations say Steve McCuiston of Murray videotaped under high school cheerleaders' skirts. McCuiston plea came Monday in Graves Circuit Court. He's set for sentencing October 20. The Paducah Sun reports that prosecutors dropped charges of voyeurism and disorderly conduct. McCuiston's attorney did not return phone calls requesting comment. Mayfield police arrested McCuiston at a Mayfield high school basketball game in February after a parent reported him under the bleachers. McCuiston taught seventh- and eighth-grade science at Livingston Middle School. He resigned his position within a week of his arrest.
