SYRACUSE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The former media director for Syracuse University’s athletic department has pleaded not guilty to charges that he secretly videotaped male athletes in the locker room.
Roger Springfield was arraigned Tuesday morning in Onondaga County Court on four counts of unlawful surveillance. He was released on his own recognizance and ordered to return to court Jan. 22 for a pretrial hearing.
Prosecutors said the charges stem from at least four secret videos that the 57-year-old made between the spring of 2010 and November 2012. Authorities said the videos were made in the locker rooms of the football team and the men’s lacrosse and soccer teams.
