A California high school student was shocked at what she found when she decided to play detective and stop a string of thefts from backpacks during gym class.

Justine Betti said she decided to hide in a locker to see if she could catch the thief in action. She didn

You should buy some from walmart and give to the teacher. He obviously needs some spare underwear.

Where else would they leave it though? You can't really play sports with a bunch of money stuffed down your socks.

Principal told them to destroy potential court evidence? Seems like two people should be charged, one for theft, one for tampering with evidence.

So the head advised her to delete the recording..... wtf???
Good thing she sent a copy to her dad. Teachers are supposed to be model figures, and this person is abusing the trust placed on her.

I thought most schools had lockers -- which can be [i]locked[/i].

Or are they old-fashion .... ?

And I'd sure put at least paper money in the bottom of my shoe, before I'd be leaving it laying about.

Sounds like a cover up is already in progressed. Schools are the very worst at that.

I fully understand both your points- and I would agree with the Why tell her to delete it? but it is probably somethings we don't know..


..I asked a lawyer about this and this was his reply.


[quote]
First of all depending on the state that this occurred .. Public such as a cafeteria or the football field (which a locker room is consider private) video taping is admissible in court but private is not at least not without a court permission. It would actually have to be done by Law Enforcement in order to be admissible in court and court approved for the location of the video to be recorded.

The investigation should have been done with Law Enforcement due to some possible problems of the teacher bringing charges against the child that video taped her and the school system.
This is partially because normal video taping there are signs that say one is being video taped. (in some states he told me that was illegal video taping someone without consent or prior posting of all activities are being video taped such as a bank or store)

Even though by evidence with looks alone that she is doing the act but in the video there is no confirmation some item was taken by the owners of the bag which should have also been included on the tape.

One major point to note also why there was the suggestion of deletion of the video is this:

Now should she have accidentally recorded a MINOR in a locker room In any form of undress on that tape then she could actually be charged with a serious crime. Also so would her father. We are talking child po rn here which is a serious crime. (he also went on to remark that even if she recorded herself on that tape in the locker room would possibly be considered that) (he also said it is one thing for a professional locker room to be on tape, but this is a High School Locker Room and a FEMALE locker room .... MAJOR RED FLAG FOR RECORDING)


[/quote]


I guess this is why- in most cases police fully document items they think a thief would steal as well as document the numbers on money. Which he also said the easy way to confirm this would have been to take money mark it.. then confront the principle after the theft to check the teacher for theft of the money and it would have confirmed it. (IE taking a picture of the 20$ that was the plant)
Instead he said this possibly could backfire if the teacher has a good lawyer.

I'd have copied the video to my machine, then pulled the gym teacher to one side and shown her, told her to return everything she took or it gets shown to everyone

That would more than likely stopped her thieving again, and everyone gets their stuff back

Ok fair point, but to me, if the evidence is destroyed, then it just becomes hearsay, and unless the teacher was naked then filming her stealing really shouldn't be such a big deal, for I think she did her school, and by extension, her community a service. But hey, that's just me.

Yes but the location of the filming was a problem.... - Some places a Locker room would be considered Private and therefore illegal and not be able to be admissible in court. (it is the filming in such places that the teacher could bring the girl up on charges for)

I thought the same thing.... she looks guilty... They should have done as the lawyer friend suggested... marking money with neon reaction ink as well as noting the numbers on it. Then confronting the teacher with the money then bring up on charges with law enforcement.

That would have been the way setting up a sting instead of possibly allowing the teacher to sue the school and the girl.

Gym teacher should be charged for theft and also fired and never be permitted to teach in a public school ever again. The principle should be fired for telling the student to destroy the evidence.
There should be a full investigation of all teachers in the entire school district to see if this is common, since the principle told the student to destroy the evidence, could he have been an accessory
to this?
