Teacher who secretly recorded more than 100 students sentenced to 15 years in prison

The former Bloomingdale High School teacher who pleaded guilty to secretly recording students in various states of undress will spend 15 years in jail followed by a lifetime on the sex offender registry, according to the sentencing by a Hillsborough County judge.

Mark Ackett was charged with 324 counts of video voyeurism and faced up to life in prison.

Prosecutors say Ackett, a former fashion design teacher and girls track coach, planted cameras and cell phones in a room that students used to change clothes. In 2018, a student discovered a cellphone that appeared to be recording video inside of a dressing area at the school.

      @Space RangerFilms I don’t think you realize how many children “over 100” is you get 15 years when you violate one child. It doesn’t matter how long it feels my friend. That is called justice. I’m currently 20 years old if I violate ONE child I can serve that lil 15 years and be out before I’m 40 and I could live another 40 years after that . Let’s say he’s 40 now he’ll be out at age 55 the dude could literally live another 25 years people live to be 80 all the time. Now the question is does a man who violated “over 100” children deserve to ever be free again? And I honestly think the answer is hell no, I say 15 years per kid with no possibility of bail or parole. This man deserves to be under the jail. I say Hit him with a firing squad and be done with it.

    15 years in prison? What, for secretly filming students while they were undressing? This evil POS should be serving multiple life sentences for doing that. Kind of reminds me of Larry Nassar. He, just like Larry Nassar, should never be allowed to get out of prison ever again. Imagine how many lives have been ruined because of him? These poor students will never be able to trust a teacher again.

    So what is the point of crying? You did the crime. And got caught. Had you not got caught, you would still be doing this. Just put your big boy pants on and accept the consequences. By the way, in prison, you're going to receive multiple haymakers and roundhouses to your sensitive areas as often as they can get to you. You might even get a deluxe shiv-colonic at some point.

    1:04 is an inappropriate comment of saying that the girls spoke "their" truth instead of saying "the" truth. The truth in this case in objective and not subjective. This teacher objectively abused these girls by doing something both evil and illegal. It's sad that the media often tries to deny the existence of objective truth.

    Maybe im wrong but 15 years in prison for peeping? Rly? Its sentence like for killing someone or rape. I know many cases when for kiilng peope goes for 10 years in prission. 5 years ok but 15 for me is veeeery high sentence. Don't get me wrong, but what he do is not that bad. He don't eaven touch this girls, don't put this in internet ect. It was bad and i understand this girls but 15 years... I can't imagine that high sentence in Europeian court. PS. Hmm if this was under 18yo children thats very bad but still 15 years...
