No Charges Filed Against Pa. School Over Webcam Monitoring
Today, federal prosecutors announced that they would not file charges against a suburban Philadelphia school district after school administrators were found to have used software to remotely monitor students. Federal officials said that they found no sign of criminal intent by school employees who used the monitoring software.
Back in February, a Pennsylvania family filed a suit against the school after their son was disciplined by an administrator who used webcam photos taken from a school-issued laptop as evidence. That case has not yet been settled.
The school district admitted that 56,000 images and screenshots were taken, allegedly to find missing laptops.
