Sheriff: Middle school teacher 'videoed down shirts of students'

CATAWBA COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

A middle school teacher in Catawba County has been suspended and banned from school grounds after deputies say he was charged filming two students at school.

According to Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid, 50-year-old Scott William Grantham, of Hickory, was arrested in May for two counts of felony secret peeping.

On May 31, Grantham was indicted on two additonal charges of indecent liberties with a child, according to the Catawba County Sheriff's Office.

Grantham is an English as Second Language teacher at Arndt Middle School.

During an on-camera interview on Monday, Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid told WBTV that Grantham was busted videoing down the shirts of female students.

"In this case, he took a video camera and videoed down the blouse of two female students there at Arndt Middle School," Reid said.

Catawba County Schools Superintendent, Dr. Dan Brigman, suspended Grantham with pay - pending the outcome of the investigation.

According to school officials, Grantham has been prohibited from being on any campus that is owned, or operated, by Catawba County Schools. He has also been banned from communicating with employees and students.

"You know, it is real sad that we send our children to school to learn and we've got role models there and then something happens like this.  It looks bad," Reid said.

School officials told WBTV that due to the ongoing investigation and laws relating to confidential personnel matters, Catawba County Schools cannot discuss this matter further at this time.
