Another Pedophile Coach Arrested, This Time for Filming Middle Schoolers Showering
Authorities last week arrested Patrick Lott, a 54-year-old assistant middle school principal, after videos of nude teenagers were found in his Somerville home. Authorities used a Superior Court search warrant to enter his house on Dec. 13 and Dec. 16, Somerset County Prosecutor Geoffrey Soriano said.
According to Soriano, the videos showed teenagers showering in the Immaculata High School boys’ communal shower area. Nine of them are under 16 years old, Soriano said.
Police found three years worth of shower footage in Lott’s home. An examination of the school locker room turned up a group of devices used for the secret videotaping.
Real talk, as someone possessing vivid memories of my elementary school gym teacher’s total disdain for underwear (it was like sex ed five years before sex ed was taught), it comes as absolutely no surprise to me that there are pedophiles employed as school coaches.
Let’s be perfectly clear here though, Patrick Lott is a married, heterosexual man. His daughter even attends the school he was filming students at. Let’s not for even a second get it twisted that pedophilia and homosexuality are two very different things.
Our critics like to moan about gays degrading marriage by being allowed to participate in it. What the hell does it say about marriage that this guy had a wife and kids?
