School Principal's DIY Investigation Ends in Wiretapping Conviction

A middle school principal from Fort Worth, Texas, has been found guilty of wire-tapping after she got her daughter to plant a camera in the locker room of another high school. 

Wendee Long, 47, had her daughter, who was 17 at the time, hide a recording cell phone to catch the basketball coach from Argyle High School yelling at the team.

Long allegedly planted the device after her two daughters had complained the coach shouted too much.

Her teenage daughter Caydan, who did not face any charges, placed a camera phone inside a locker and pressed record.

It did not capture coach Skip Townsend, 61, saying or doing anything inappropriate during the half-time meeting, authorities told WFAA-TV. Someone anonymously sent the video to the superintendent and several board members and Long turned herself in to authorities. (more)
