Asst. Principal Patrick Lott Arrested For Videotaping Young Boys In Shower

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The Somerset County prosecutor announced Patrick Lott, an assistant principal at Bernardsville Middle School since 2009, is facing charges he secretly videotaped boys showering at Immaculata High School in Somerville, where he is a videographer.


Lott, 54, was arrested last week, after videos of nude teenagers showering were found in his home, Prosecutor Geoffrey Soriano said. According to the prosecutor, the videos showed teenagers in a boys` communal shower area. Nine of the teenagers identified are under the age of 16."


Patrick Lott has a lot in common with the notorious Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach at Penn State, who faces 40 felony counts of s[e]xual abuse of young boys. These creeps were respected members of society, and they both volunteered to mentor young boys. Lott was a volunteer coach with the high school`s athletic department.

You`d think that a veteran, volunteer coach, cancer survivor and family man would never commit such despicable acts, but appearances can be deceiving.

We must be diligent in protecting our children from s[e]xual deviants, we must be wary of anyone who spends a lot of time with our kids whether they be nannies, a ministers, teachers or football coaches. It`s better to be a little bit paranoid, than regretful that you didn`t do due diligence in checking out the background of the teacher that molested your son or daughter.

Child molesters will NEVER overcome their sick urges, predators like Lott and Sandusky should spend the rest of their lives behind bars.

Heaven only knows how many hours Lott spent watching video of the young boys showering, but in prison he will dread the prospect of taking a shower. The prisoners will make his life a living hell, it`s a safe bet that he will be repeatedly assaulted.
