Blackwell Elementary teacher charged with placing a camera in boys’ bathroom


An employee at a Marietta school is accused of eavesdropping on students by placing cameras in the school bathrooms. 

Justin Julian, a Blackwell Elementary School teacher, was arrested and accused of placing a camera in a boys’ bathroom at the school and watching two 10-year-old students and one 8-year-old student use a urinal.

According to a warrant filed by the Cobb County Police Department, Julian was arrested after a student observed the camera, became distraught, and notified a school teacher. 

Julian, 37, of Acworth, was charged with three counts of felony unlawful eavesdropping or surveillance and one felony count of cruelty to children. He was booked into the Cobb County Jail Friday evening and released early Saturday on a $15,000 bond.

A Cobb County School District spokesperson released a statement regarding the incident:

“As soon as the administration discovered the issue, they immediately reported it to police and are fully cooperating with the investigation. The allegations against a school employee are abhorrent, totally unacceptable, and violate our employee code of conduct. The employee has been arrested, and all applicable laws and district policies will be strongly enforced in every possible way. We ask the community to continue to join us to make sure our schools are safe by reporting any safety concerns to the District’s Tip Line via call, text, or email.”

The School District spokesperson said that “due to the ongoing investigation,” further details cannot be provided.
