Michael Scott Scheeler faces up to 44 years in prison and a $125,000 fine. He will be sentenced in August. A judge Thursday amended a prohibition that the defendant have no contact with children so that Scheeler can visit his 7-year-old daughter.
Scheeler was charged on Thursday, Jan. 13, 2011, with sexual abuse of children and other offenses for videotaping three students, ages 16 and 17, while they were in the bathroom and bedrooms of his house.
