Seth Thompson, Ex-Library Employee, Filmed Students Masturbating In Bathroom: Cops

Palm Beach County

A former library employee at Floriday Atlantic University is accused of secretly filming students masturbating in a campus bathroom, then uploading the videos to porn websites.

Seth Thompson, 40, was arrested Tuesday and charged with 13 counts of video voyeurism, as well as other charges related to uploading four videos, the Palm Beach Post reported.

"Thompson stated that he initially began recording these videos after seeing similar videos online, which gave him the impression that there are people who are enjoy [sic] viewing videos showing males masturbating and urinating," according to police documents obtained by the Broward Palm Beach New Times.

The videos were posted online under the screen name "JERKING_BUD."

The investigation began in August, after a student told authorities he discovered a 30-second clip of himself urinating online. Police searched Thompson's home that month, and say he admitted to secretly filming students. He resigned shortly thereafter.

According to WPTV, police say Thompson told them he thought he'd be able to upload the videos without anyone knowing it was him.

He was arrested Tuesday and charged with 13 counts of video voyeurism, as well as other charges related to uploading four videos.
