64 students identified in Ohio high school coach Scott Studer nude photos investigation

MASSILLON, Ohio (WEWS) - The police chief in Jackson Township, Ohio confirms that 64 students have been identified in the Jackson High School basketball coach investigation involving nude photos.

Scott Studer was being investigated by the U.S. Postal Service for child pornography when the images of the teens were discovered.

Studer, 46, is accused of videotaping his players in the shower. Police said he positioned the camera in the shower area of the locker room, then would take the camera home and download the images to his hard drive before returning the camera back to the locker room.

Officials said there's no indication Studer disseminated the footage and there's no evidence he showered with his players.

Studer was in his 27th season as a basketball coach for the Jackson High School Polar Bears, and students mentioned that he was well-liked among the student athletes.

Studer, who graduated from Jackson High School, resigned from his position after his arrest last week.
