Former Teacher, Swim Coach Secretly Tapes Boys Showering

He secretly recorded teenage boys showering in the locker room for nearly 20 years and now the former high school teacher, and swim coach from Kansas City is going away for 30 years.

54-year-old Russell Green, Jr is also facing more charges after he was caught video taping himself having sex with several boys at his house.

Green was formerly a teacher at various middle schools and high schools in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Green was also a head swimming coach at his school and at a Leawood, Kan. swim club.

In addition, Green was ordered Green to pay a $10,000 fine and a $10,000 special victim assessment.

On Nov. 20, 2018, Green pleaded guilty to one count of producing child pornography and one count of possessing child pornography. Green admitted that he utilized a hidden video camera to produce secret videos of high school boys as they were undressing and/or preparing to shower in the school’s locker room. He also admitted that he used a hidden video camera to produce secret videos of kids having sex with him at his home. From the late 1990s through approximately 2015, he recorded the videos using an 8-millimeter video camera then later transferred the videos from tape to disc.

A search warrant was executed at Green’s house in April 2017. Investigators found video recordings produced by Green using a hidden camcorder in a locker room dressing area. The videos depict numerous unidentified 14- to 17-year-old boys undressing as they prepare to shower. The boys are unaware they are being video recorded. Green produced these videos at the high school where he was a teacher and coach; the boys depicted in the videos were his students and members of his swim team.

During the search of Green’s residence, investigators also located a device that contained an approximately 45-minute video that was also secretly recorded by Green with a hidden camera. The video graphically depicts Green having a sexual encounter with a child victim in his residence.

Numerous pictures of child porn were found on Green’s electronic devices. Many of the photos appear to be “selfie”-style photos taken by the subjects of the photos. Some of these images appear to have been sent to Green by boys with whom he was acquainted.
