RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (TCD) -- A former high school assistant football coach was recently sentenced to nearly a decade in jail for placing a hidden camera inside a high school girls bathroom and locker room.
According to a news release from the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office, charges against David Arthur Riden were filed on Aug. 30, 2021. More than a year later, on Oct. 7, the District Attorney’s Office announced that Riden pleaded guilty to hiding the camera in the girls locker room.
Riden also reportedly pleaded guilty to the possession of over 600 images of child sexual assault material and using a minor to produce child sexual assault material.
On Friday, Nov. 18, Riden was sentenced to nine years and four months in jail and will become a lifetime registered sex offender, KTTV-TV reports.
An attorney, Gloria Allred, is reportedly representing 48 victims in a case against the school, Los Osos High School, as well as the Chaffey Joint High School District.
According to KTTV, during a virtual press conference, one of Riden’s victims who is now 18 years old, Jordyn Stotts, said, "I let what he did affect me," and "the game you played was sick."
Stotts continued, "I and other victims were mocked by other students because of the way the school addressed the situation. They didn’t do it in a manner where students could grieve and understand what the victims really went through. Students were going around the halls staring at us, posting on social media."
