    B.C. drama teacher formally charged in U.S. with 15 voyeurism counts

    I realize this is a very unsettling story but it strange to hear dat chinee is peepin' at people...

    OLYMPIA, Wash. (CP) - Prosecutors on Friday charged a British Columbia teacher with videotaping students in the shower during a high-school wrestling tournament in nearby Tumwater.

    Chi Yung Luu, 29, of Delta, B.C., was charged with 15 counts of voyeurism, a felony sex offence that could carry a maximum overall sentence of five years if prosecutors seek enhanced punishment. The local prosecutor said Luu could face more serious sexual-exploitation charges if it's found that any of the boys on being videotaped were under the age of 18.

    Luu remained jailed in Thurston County on $750,000 US bail. He was arrested Wednesday after a student said he noticed Luu in the locker room with a video camera concealed in a towel.

    Luu, a high school drama teacher, was suspended Friday by the school board in Delta. Chairwoman Heather King said the district was surprised by the charges.

    "We have had absolutely no negative comments regarding this teacher," she said.

    King said Luu was hired a year and a half ago from Edmonton "with glowing references," and a background check turned up no criminal record.

    Luu was not connected with the tournament and the school were he taught did not have a team entered in the competition.

    The student who alerted authorities Wednesday also told police he recognized the man from another tournament a year ago, where the man was also videotaping male wrestlers in the shower, court documents said.

    "We've got at least 15 different individuals who were photographed or filmed while they were in the shower," said Tumwater police Lieut. Bruce Brenna.

    Detectives said they seized two video cameras and a handful of tapes, which showed athletes at other sporting events filmed from the stands, not inside locker rooms or showers, Brenna said.

    "This doesn't look like something that was confined strictly to us," he said.

    But Brenna said police will investigate whether others have been secretly videotaped.

    "We're looking at the number of videotapes and what occurred," he said. "Chances are that this is not the first time that he's done that."

    Jodilyn Erikson-Muldrew, a deputy Thurston County prosecutor, declined to comment on the ongoing investigation but said Tumwater police were co-operating with federal and Canadian authorities.

    Early Friday morning, the RCMP's integrated child-exploitation team raided Luu's Delta basement suite, seizing a computer and several boxes of documents.

    U.S. immigration authorities also placed a detention order on Luu in case he makes bail before a scheduled Jan. 11 arraignment, Erikson-Muldrew said.

    "If he were to make bail in our case, he would go into federal custody," she said.

    U.S. authorities said Luu apparently has only one Canadian relative - in Edmonton - but many in Hong Kong, making him flight risk.

    Asian people like sex too, they're a bunch of freaks. (not that everyone doesn't have a little freak in them), just not to that extent.
    ...Not saying that all Asians are into that stuff either
