Former Texas Athletics Staffer Guilty of Filming Athletes in Locker Room

March 11, 2013

A former University of Texas at Austin equipment manager was found guilty by a county jury last week on six of seven counts of improper photography or visual recording, after he filmed members of the women’s track and cross country team in the shower locker room. Campus police began investigating Rene Zamora after an athlete caught him filming her in September 2010, the Austin American-Statesman reported, but he'd been recording women over the course of three years. The university suspended Zamora one week into their investigation and he resigned two days later. This marks the third time this year that a Texas athletics official was punished for inappropriate sexual conduct with students. The other two cases, though, were consensual relationships.
