Former Webster teacher Terrance Hoctor sentenced for recording girls changing
A former Webster teacher who recorded two students as they changed in a school bathroom was sentenced Wednesday in Monroe County Court.
Terrance P. Hoctor, 44, who was a fourth-grade teacher at State Road Elementary School, pleaded guilty to second-degree unlawful surveillance, a felony, in October.
Hoctor was sentenced by acting County Court Judge Stephen T. Miller to six months in prison, five years of probation, and five years of a no-contact order of protection for each victim. He also forfeited his teaching license and has to register as a Level 1 sex offender.
Hoctor was initially charged with two counts of unlawful surveillance and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor. His attorney tried to argue that the charge Hoctor pleaded guilty to, claiming that installing a recording device in the faculty restroom had nothing to do with sexual arousal.
