24 students in coach’s nude locker room videos, police say

CANTON, Ohio – Twenty-four students have been identified on locker room videotapes allegedly made by a high school coach charged in the investigation, the police chief said Friday.

All those identified on the tapes made at Jackson High School are male student-athletes, according to Chief Dave Zink of nearby Jackson Township.

“Everything we have to this point we’ve been able to identify,” he said.

Zink said there was no evidence of videotaping in the visitor locker room. He declined to specify the period of time when the boys were videotaped because victims and families were still being notified.

Police have charged Scott Studer, 46, on six felony counts. He has been held on $2 million bond. His attorney said Studer maintains his innocence.

Zink said earlier there was no evidence that Studer had shared any videos.

The freshman basketball coach was arrested Wednesday after investigators searched his home and found nude images on a DVD, a laptop computer and a flash drive, officials said.

Studer quit his jobs Wednesday as coach and school building aide.

The materials were found during a search led by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. The agency didn’t return messages on what prompted the search.
