Teacher accused of putting video camera in restroom

Posted

IMMOKALEE -- A Collier County Public Schools (CCPS) teacher has been charged with a felony after an investigation  regarding a video camera placed in a restroom at Pinecrest Elementary School in Immokalee.

Diego Alberto Rojas-Pulido, 37, is charged with video voyeurism - offender 24 or older and victim under 16. The charge is a second-degree felony.
\
Deputies say three students discovered what appeared to be a video recording device attached to a metal tissue box in the restroom adjacent to the classroom where Rojas-Pulido was teaching on April 19. The students reported it to Rojas-Pulido, who removed the device from the restroom but did not report it to the school administration.
 
On April 20, one of the students told a school counselor, who immediately reported it to the school’s principal and Collier County Sheriff's Office. 
 
CCPS then immediately removed Rojas-Pulido from the school.
 
On the evening of April 21, deputies were called to Rojas-Pulido’s residence at 14870 Pleasant Bay Ln #1203 after Rojas-Pulido reportedly attempted to take his own life. He was transported to a Lee County hospital for treatment.
 
He was served with the Collier County arrest warrant in the hospital on Friday after detectives developed probable cause for the charge.
 
The investigation continues.
