A South Colonie School District teacher is admitting to putting a camera in the faculty bathroom.

Patrick Morgan, 58, was arrested by state police on 11 charges of unlawful surveillance back in February.

He pleaded guilty Friday to unlawful surveillance charges.

He hid a camera disguised as a cell phone charger.

The device recorded school staff members in the bathroom at Sand Creek Middle School.

Morgan faces two to six years in state prison when he’s sentenced in January. He’s also required to register as a sex offender.
