Man who made secret recordings in Boston Latin School restroom pleads guilty

BOSTON (AP) — A Boston man who authorities say secretly recorded boys using the restrooms at the Boston Latin School has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges.

Federal prosecutors said Tuesday that 36-year-old Eric Tran Thai faces up to 15 years in prison under the terms of a plea agreement. Sentencing is scheduled for May 13.

Authorities started investigating in February 2018 after two Boston College students complained to campus police that someone had recorded them without their knowledge or consent using the restrooms. He was charged in connection with about 45 secretly recorded videos of male students using the restroom at Boston Latin.
