A former Norwalk teacher has pleaded not guilty to voyeurism and risk of injury to a minor after he was accused of taking "upskirt" photographs and videos of female students.
Former Brien McMahon High School world languages teacher David Marchetti, of Greenwich, faces charges of felony voyeurism and felony risk of injury to a minor. He pleaded not guilty to four counts of voyeurism with the intent to arouse sexual desire and one count of risk of injury to a child, according to the state judicial website.
Court records show students told school administrators and police in May that the 30-year-old Marchetti, of Cos Cob, was taking cellphone photos and videos at an "upward angle from the bottom of shorts and skirts."
He was placed on administrative leave May 5 and resigned June 30.
Marchetti's lawyer said it would be premature to jump to conclusions about his client's case.
Marchetti was charged with four counts of voyeurism and one count of injury or risk of injury or impairing the morals of a minor, according to Norwalk Police Department's arrest log.
The Advocate reports Marchetti entered pro-forma not-guilty pleas through an attorney in state Superior Court in Stamford on Friday.
Marchetti's attorney was not available for comment Friday.
He is next scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 16.
