BELLINGHAM, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts middle school teacher charged with secretly recording a 14-year-old student using the bathroom is heading to court.
    
Prosecutors say 38-year-old Scott McDonald is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on charges including photographing sexual or intimate parts of a child.
    
McDonald is a teacher and baseball coach at Bellingham Memorial Middle School.
    
Police say a 14-year-old boy told a school resource officer earlier this month that when McDonald told him he could use the faculty bathroom, the boy found a box with a hole and a cellphone recording inside.
    
McDonald was placed on leave Nov. 9.
    
Bellingham schools Superintendent Peter Marano said he was "absolutely appalled" by the allegations.
    
There was no answer at a phone listing for McDonald and it was unclear if he has a lawyer.
