Ex-Theater Director Accused Of Taping Students Turns Self In


A former theater instructor who already faced a charge of gross sexual imposition turned himself into police on Monday, a few hours after he was indicted on 20 new counts of voyeurism.

Lawrence Dibble said nothing as he walked into the Upper Arlington police department with an attorney by his side.

The new charges against Dibble came after investigators said they discovered he had used a hidden camera to record theater students undressing between August 2002 and June 2003, 10TV News reported.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien said investigators had contacted 20 alleged victims and were confident there were no others.

"They need not call here, they need not call Wellington and ask, 'Was my daughter one of the people subject of voyeurism,' because if you have had no previous contact with Upper Arlington police, then you are not a victim in the case, based on the information we have now," O'Brien said.

Dibble was initially arrested last month when a former Wellington student came forward with allegations that he touched her inappropriately on school property.

He pleaded not guilty to a charge of gross sexual imposition stemming from that investigation.
