Former Seattle high school ski coach pleads guilty to charge related to secretly filming female students
SEATTLE — Jason Christoper Paur, a former teacher at The Bush School in Seattle, pleaded Monday to a charge related to secretly video-taped students undressing while they were on a skiing trip in Canada.
The 44-year-old pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.
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 in Seattle, for 10 years. He was fired following his arrest.
His sentencing is set for February.
