A wall-mounted camera used to videotape the men's bathroom of a mid-island bar has invaded the privacy of bar patrons, according to a lawsuit filed in the Beaufort County Courthouse last week. The lawsuit, filed Sept. 6, accuses the owner of Vic's Tavern, Charles S.

Police said they found on one of Lefton's work computers evidence that he had transferred images of two Carmel students taken from surveillance cameras in the school's hallways.

Investigators also found child erotica photos -- not related to any Carmel Clay students -- on Lefton's home computer, police said.
