A junior high school teacher, who was arrested once before for taking photos of girls in a school toilet, has been detained a second time.
According to police, the suspect, identified as Takayuki Suzuki, teaches at a school in Shimizu, Shizuoka Prefecture. TBS reported Tuesday that Suzuki was arrested and charged with possession and production of child pornography.
Police said that on July 17, Suzuki set up a small video camera in a girl's restroom at the school. Two students spotted the camera and reported it to the principal.
Police said Suzuki has confessed to the charge and confiscated from his house a large collection of videos of girls in the toilet that appear to have also been taken at the school.
Suzuki was arrested for a similar offense two years ago but got a suspended sentence, local media reported.© Japan Today
