IT admin stole students' nude Facebook pics, cops say

'Upskirt' camerawork alleged

The essential guide to IT transformation

As if we need more proof that people will post anything to social networking sites, we now have this: A former computer administrator at the University of Massachusetts is facing charges he illegally obtained nude pictures of some 16 students by breaking in to their Facebook accounts.

Robert T. DeCampos Jr., 30, of Dartmouth, Massachusetts was arraigned on 13 misdemeanor counts of unauthorized access to a computer and one felony count of larceny over $250, according to news reports. They cited court documents that claimed DeCampos used the students' email accounts to gain access to their personal Facebook accounts. From there, he was able to download nude and partially nude photos that had been posted there.

Police searching DeCampos's apartment found a flash drive containing the photos of the woman obtained during a two-day period in October. Investigators also allegedly discovered "attempted 'upskirt' photos of unsuspecting women" shopping at electronics retailer Best Buy, where DeCampos worked part time.

DeCampos was sacked from his admin job on October 20, four days after the alleged trespasses were discovered. He previously spent two years as the computer manager for the Dartmouth police, ending in 2006.
