SEATTLE -- A federal judge on Tuesday sentenced a former ski coach at a private school in Seattle to eight years in prison for secretly videotaping female students undressing while they were on a skiing trip in Canada.

Jason Christoper Paur, 44, who had worked at  The Bush School in Seattle, had pleaded guilty in November to a charge of 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, for 10 years. He was fired following his arrest.
