Coach accused of secretly taping student heading to trial

PALMERTON, Pa. - A volunteer coach at a Carbon County high school, accused of secretly videotaping a student, is heading to trial.

Robert Eckhart waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday.

Back in February, police say he set up his cell phone in a gym bathroom at Palmerton High School and then asked a girl to use that bathroom to change.

After undressing, the girl found the phone and reported it to officials.

Eckhart was terminated immediately.
