Former teacher at The Bush School pleads not guilty to child porn-related charges
SEATTLE — Jason Christoper Paur, a former teacher at The Bush School in Seattle, pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges he secretly video-taped underage girls undressing while they were on a skiing trip in Canada.
The 44-year-old is to appear again in U.S. federal court in Seattle on March 19.
He is charged with five child pornography-related offenses.
Paur was arrested at the Silver Star ski area in British Columbia in December 2013. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the students had discovered a camera hidden in their bedroom. Prosecutors say he also recorded students during the annual ski trip the prior two years.
Paur had worked at The Bush School, a prestigious private school, for 10 years. He was fired following his arrest.
