Coach at Seattle private school charged with voyeurism

A coach and substitute teacher at The Bush School in Seattle has been placed on administrative leave after he was arrested and charged with voyeurism and other offenses while on a school-sponsored cross-country ski-team trip to southern British Columbia.

Jason C. Paur, 43, was arrested Tuesday after the discovery of a video camera belonging to him, found by students in a room occupied by girls at the Silver Star ski resort near Vernon, B.C., according to a statement released by the private school and Frank Magusin, the head of school.

Paur was being held in British Columbia in connection with alleged offenses that occurred Monday and Tuesday, Neil MacKenzie, a spokesman for the provincial Criminal Justice Branch, said Thursday.

Paur was charged with three counts of voyeurism related to observing or recording individuals in a place where they have a reasonable expectation of privacy and to be nude. He also was charged with possessing child pornography, accessing child pornography and three counts of breaking and entering with intent to commit an indictable offense.

Paur, who has not entered a plea, made his first court appearance Wednesday and is scheduled to return to court next Wednesday. No bail has been set.
