A Plainville man is accused of recording girls changing in a locker room at Plainville High School
Federal agents and Plainville police served a search and seizure warrant at the Northwest Drive home of 49-year-old Kyle Fasold on Friday.
The warrant was for the search of electronic items, including an Apple iPhone X. Initial analysis of the iPhone revealed multiple video files and images, authorities said.
The investigation revealed recordings of girls changing at his home and in the women’s locker room of the school dating back to May 2018, according to officials. Prosecutors said the victims were as young as 10.
Homeland Security investigators believe that some of the videos were taken of current and past members of a Plainville swim club.
In court Tuesday, parents were weeping as the assistant U.S. attorney read details of the years of alleged secret recordings.
"We rely on our parent volunteers. It’s a close-knit community. This is very upsetting to the parents who knew this person, this volunteer very well," explained Robert Lee, Plainville's town manager.
Fasold is charged with production and attempted production of child pornography, and possession of child pornography. Production of child pornography carries a mandatory minimum term of 15 years and a maximum of 30 years in prison. Possession of child pornography carries a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years.
Fasold's attorney tried to secure his client's release to his parents' home pending trial, but the judge denied the request. His attorney declined to comment on the case outside of court.
Investigators say they are working to identify the young girls Fasold is accused of recording so the family members can be notified.
" Obviously great concern for our student s who attend Plainville schools, who are involved at Parks and Rec Blue Dolphins swim program," said Plainville Community Schools Superintendent Steve LePage.
Counselors have been made available to students in town and there will soon be services for parents as well.
The federal investigation is still ongoing.
