ATLANTA, GA -- A federal magistrate has denied bond for a man accused of secretly recording video in the restrooms of an Atlanta school.

Federal agents say 51 year old Josh Ensley placed video cameras in the boys and girls restrooms at Paideia, a private school in northeast Atlanta. Ensley worked at the school as a janitor. Agents arrested Ensley last week as part of an international child pornography investigation.

During a court hearing Wednesday, investigators said that Ensley admitted creating video from cameras he'd hidden in the two restrooms over a period of five years.

"He placed (the cameras) in a manner so that people using the restroom would not notice it, so he could continue his misbehavior," said Assistant US Attorney Jill Steinberg in an interview with 11 Alive News.

Prosecutors argued that Ensley would be a danger to the community and a flight risk if released on bond. Judge Linda Walker ordered Ensley held until trial. No date has been set for that.
