Former Rice Memorial High School teacher Brian Lynam pleaded guilty to taking an “upskirt” photograph of a student at the school in a plea agreement that will keep him out of prison.
Lynam, 32, was charged with three counts of taking photographs up the skirts of female students, staff members and women in the community, according to the affidavit in the case. Two of those charges were dropped in exchange for the guilty plea to one of the charges.
Judge Martin A. Maley accepted the plea agreement at a hearing Jan. 29. The agreement includes two years of probation, and a 6-12 month suspended sentence if he violates his probation.
Lynam agreed to forever forfeit his teaching license in the state of Vermont, and to be entered into a national database that will inform schools in other states of his guilty plea. He will not have to register as a sex offender as a result of the plea.
