Fall River janitor accused of taking illicit photo
FALL RIVER, Mass.—A janitor at a Fall River elementary school has been charged with taking a picture of a 40-year-old woman using a school bathroom.
Bruce Tidwell has released on personal recognizance Wednesday after pleading not guilty to photographing an unsuspecting person who is nude or partially nude.
The woman, a counselor working at the Letourneau Elementary School, told police she was in the bathroom Tuesday with the door locked when she heard a click. She opened the stall door to allegedly find the 57-year-old Tidwell on his hands and knees with a cellphone open.
The superintendent tells The Herald News ( http://bit.ly/JcnPIK) that Tidwell is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the case.
Police say there is no indication children were involved.
His lawyer asked for the low bail.
