Former Oregon State University Student Investigated For Filming Adult Video In Library

From The Oregonian:

A 19-year-old former Oregon State University student has been charged with public indecency in connection with allegations that she recorded an adult film on the sixth floor of the main campus library [The Valley Library], university officials said.

Steve Clark, a spokesman for OSU, said the university learned about the video on Tuesday but it is believed the film, which was published on the Web, was recorded during the fall semester.


Although the campus library is patrolled by security personnel and campus police, the building is 340,000 square feet and can’t be monitored all the time, leaving an opportunity for such incidents to happen, [Stephen] Clark [a spokesman for OSU] said.

What allegedly took place at Oregon State U. is far from unique.
