MASSILLON, OH (WOIO) -

Police say a total of 38 student athletes have now been id'd in the secret videos recorded in the Jackson High School boys locker room.

Former freshman basketball coach and building aid Scott Studer was arrested Wednesday. Police say Studer hid the cameras in the locker room and filmed the boys while they were in the shower.  Parents say Studer mandated the showers and participated in them.

Studer,46, pled not guilty at his arraignment Thursday and is being held on a $2 million dollar bond.

For 25 years, Jackson Township parents trusted Coach Studer, but police say he abused that trust and victimized countless boys.

"At the basketball banquet every year he'd break down and cry about his commitment to these kids.  Little did we know he was video taping them," said Jon DuPont, concerned parent and Jackson Youth Basketball Association Commissioner.

"These images to our knowledge at this point were not shared with others," said Jackson Police Chief Dave Zink.

Jackson PD says the secret periodic recordings went on for eight years, but some wonder if it goes even deeper.

"He had parties at his house.  He had sleepovers on numerous occasions," said DuPont.

"You always think, there's something not right here" said Deb Cahoon.

On top of already feeling violated and betrayed, Jackson parents and players are bothered that the information first came to them through the media and not from the school.

"I was upset we weren't contacted by an administrator.  My son is terribly upset.  He's on the ninth grade team now," said parent Sylvera Greene.

Coach Studer has already resigned, and is facing eight state charges.  He'll likely face federal charges.  Now, the police department must sift through all the evidence gathered from his house to identify victims.
