School Counselor Arrested On Sexual Exploitation Charges

Last updated on Tuesday, February 4, 2014

(MUNCIE) - A school counselor in New Castle is accused of using his job to exploit several students.

U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett says Darrell Hughes worked with troubled teenage boys at an alternative school and would invite them to his house.

Federal officials say Hughes had an elaborate system of hidden cameras set up to film the students' every move and would offer to take pictures of them naked to help them launch modeling careers.

An investigation was launched last month after one of the victims came forward.
