Author: West Kentucky Star Staff

A former Murray High School teacher and coach accused of placing a video recorder in a bathroom was in court on Tuesday. 

Mark Boggess appeared before Calloway County District Judge Randall Hutchens, where his attorney asked to have Boggess' bond lowered. That motion was denied. 

A preliminary hearing has been set for May 29 at 9:30 am. 

Boggess was arrested April 25 by Murray Police after staff reported finding a recording device set up in the bathroom of the nurse's station. Police say the recorder captured Boggess putting the device in place, and he was arrested after being questioned. 

Boggess, who was a teacher at the school as well as the track and field coach, resigned after his arrest. He is charged with three counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and four counts of voyeurism.
