This week, Towson University diving coach Maureen Mead was indicted for felony interception of communication, as well as misdemeanors for “peeping Tom” and tampering with evidence. The charges stem from an investigation into a cell phone found in the women’s locker room at the school.
The women’s swimming and diving team boycotted a meet last week because of the lack of information about the mysterious cell phone. According to the Towson Towerlight, Mead — as well as the team’s head and assistant coaches — have been on administrative leave since mid-November.
“The investigation continues regarding other members of the coaching staff, and we will provide more information as it becomes available,” the university said in a statement. “The well-being of our student-athletes remains and will continue to be our top priority.”
Earlier this year, another Towson staff member, Rabbi Barry Freundel, was convicted of videotaping students undressing to get into a ritual bath.
