A Brockton High School counselor has been charged with taking lewd cellphone pictures of female students. Galen Stone III was released on $500 bail after pleading not guilty Tuesday to criminal harassment and accosting or annoying a person of the opposite sex. Authorities say Stone, 55, took pictures of students’ “clothed chest area’’ as they reached for candy he placed on a cafeteria table. The students complained to administrators last month, and Stone was arrested Monday. He has worked at the school since 2007. Stone and his lawyer refused comment when they left court. (AP)
