Two McNeil High School students were arrested last month on charges they illegally recorded video of another student in the bathroom and then posted the video on social media. A third student, a juvenile still unnamed by police, may also face charges.
The two students arrested — 18-year-old Cory McMahan and 17-year-old Corbin Banda — were charged with invasive visual recording, a state jail felony punishable by up to two years imprisonment. Both were released after posting $25,000 bond.
“The incident that occurred was a gross violation of privacy and behavior that will not be tolerated in Round Rock ISD,” said RRISD spokesperson Jenny LaCoste-Caputo in a written statement.
According to court records, warrants were issued for Banda and McMahan, who is the son of the school’s head football coach and athletic coordinator, was issued on April 6 as a result of a police investigation that wound up with both students being indicted on March 29.
Court documents show that the students allegedly recorded the unnamed victim in a bathroom stall and then posted the video to the social media network Snapchat. The incident reportedly took place in November. The victim, a senior, has since transferred to another RRISD school. McMahan and Banda spent 30 days in an alternative placement within the district but have since returned to McNeil.
