KENNEDALE — A Kennedale High School teacher accused of planting hidden cameras in faculty bathrooms has been released on bond.
Jason Tomlinson was released Tuesday morning after his bond was reduced from $100,000 to $5,000. The charge of improper photography is a state jail felony.
Tomlinson’s attorney says the original higher bond was set while police determined whether their investigation would involve children. Kennedale police chief Tommy Williams says evidence indicates cameras were hidden only in faculty restrooms and there's no evidence so far that children were involved.
Tomlinson was ordered to wear a monitor as a condition of his bond. According to affidavits, investigators found video files labeled by teacher name. Files contained images of male and female teachers.
