WESTPORT -

A Westport school maintenance worker is charged with taking videos of an unsuspecting high school student.

Police say a school resource officer at Staples High School witnessed 52-year-old Paul Telep taking the videos of the girl in the school's cafeteria.

They say a search of the town-owned phone turned up seven deleted videos all featuring the same girl, who told police she did not know what was going on.

The school district says Telep is currently on paid administrative leave.
