The former Towson University diving coach who was charged in a peeping tom case in November faced a judge on Wednesday. The hearing provided new details on why Maureen Mead planted a cell phone in the women’s locker room at the university’s pool.
According to CBS Baltimore, Mead was sentenced to three years probation in connection with the case.
The Baltimore Sun’s Alison Knezevich reports Mead hid the cell phone to spy on the swimmers because she believed they were sabotaging the school’s recruiting efforts.
The cell phone was found in October, and Mead was indicted a month later. Mead, who is the wife of head coach Pat Mead, was no longer on the university’s staff as of November, after the indictment came down.
But many facts of the case were still unclear. The team boycotted a meet in the midst of the investigation. National sports blog Deadspin obtained e-mails in connection with the case, but still didn’t learn the reason behind the taping.
