TEXARKANA -- A former teacher has pleaded guilty to invasive video recording of an 11-year-old boy in November at Central Mall in Texarkana, Texas.

Shane Samuel Jones, 31, entered his plea Monday before District Judge John Tidwell in Texas. Assistant District Attorney Katie Carter told Tidwell that Jones' plea agreement includes a five-year term of probation.

Tidwell ordered Bowie County probation officials to complete a pre-sentencing investigative report and scheduled Jones to return to court later this month.

"Then I'll decide if we're going to proceed with sentencing," Tidwell said.

On Nov. 25, Jones slipped his cellphone under the stall divider in a restroom at a J.C. Penney store in the mall and took a photo of the boy, according to earlier reports. The boy told his father, who instructed his son to notify store employees while he made sure Jones did not flee.

Jones also faces charges of filming students at Trinity Christian School in Texarkana, Ark., where he had taught. He was arrested in December on charges of voyeurism and video voyeurism.

Jones confessed to Texarkana, Ark., police that he had filmed boys in a school bathroom, according to police.

Officers seized Jones' computer from Trinity Christian and executed a search at his home in November. He was released on $100,000 bail after his arrest in Miller County.

I'm surprised Trinity Christian didn't just forgive him and "pray away" his transgressions as many evangelicals seem to be doing these days. Pedophilia is a serious crime and illness that needs to be dealt with to avoid harm to children. It knows no boundaries and while often attributed to the LGBT community, is more prevalent in heterosexuals. Sexual orientation doesn't matter. Pedophilia is bad regardless.

This male teacher taking photos of a male child is obviously not heterosexual. He is a homosexual pedophile.

Toenails did you read all of my comment? The vast majority of pedophiles today are heterosexual, yet people like you like to brandish the LGBT community as pedophiles. You take and accuse trans individuals as pedophiles stalking little girls when all they want to do is be afforded public accommodations.

I wonder why Mac is not talking about the white culture and their propensity for child molestation?

If this happens when you allow gay men in restrooms with other males imagine what goes on when men who say they "feel" they are a woman are allowed in women's bathrooms.

No more sympathy for this gay white criminal than for Black thugs committing violent crimes.

I hope this gay white guy isn't set free with only a 5pm verbal curfew.

You didn't answer my question. What is wrong with the white culture that produces so many child molesters?

3rdWorld................maybe the defective gay gene is more prevailing in whites.

Appears to be the case judging from liberals who post here .

Except, by far, most child molesters are not gay.
I know this is a big country but you really don't get a sense of how ignorant people are in this world until you get on boards like these. Amazing people could be so uninformed and just down right stupid. And the worst part. They are proud of their stupidity. Ignorance is bliss...
I would be horrified if everything I was saying, after researching, was proven completely false. The psychology behind someone not caring is interesting.
Maybe I should ask. Gen, why do you not care that everything you say is completely false? This is for research. Why?

3World..............The vast majority of Catholic priests who molested boys and young males were gay.

Many years back, being a priest was a good place to have your homosexuality kept hidden.
Several of those priests also died of AIDS.

( and it wasn't from contaminated blood transfusions either )

The Catholic Church started screening out gays as a way of preventing this.

It is working.

Very few reports in the last 20 years.

I love witnessing GM's rhetorical disintegration first-hand. This is delicious stuff.

Hey, GM...did you ever decide if your real name is "Douglas MacArthur?"

A simple yes/no answer will suffice.
