This time it's not a salaryman or a policeman but an ALT.

An Australian assistant language teacher (ALT) was arrested in west Japan on July 9 for allegedly secretly filming a female student in a bathroom at the junior high school where he works. Mick Derevnin, 31, a part-time teacher residing in the Kagawa Prefecture city of Kanonji, was arrested by Kagawa Prefectural Police's community living section and Kanonji Police Station on suspicion of violating the Act on Punishment of Activities Relating to Child Prostitution and Child Pornography, as well as a prefectural nuisance prevention ordinance.Derevnin is accused of entering the girls' bathroom at the junior high school where he is employed on around July 6 and using what appears to be a small camera to secretly film a 12-year-old first-year student.
