The former Jackson High coach accused of hiding cameras inside the boys locker-room shower, was arraigned today. Scott Studer pled not guilty and bond was set at $2 million dollars. For 25 years, Jackson Township parents trusted coach Studer, but police say he abused that trust and victimized countless boys. "At the basketball banquet every year he'd break down and cry about his commitment to these kids. Little did we know he was video taping them," said Jon DuPont, concerned parent and Jackson Youth Basketball Association Commissioner. The 46-year-old freshman basketball coach and high school Building Aide is being held at the Stark County Jail. He's accused of hiding a camera in the boys locker room and filming them in the shower, something parents say Studer mandated and participated in.

The doping scandal surrounding disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong is causing another big change.  The Lance Armstrong Foundation has formally dropped Armstrong's name from its title.  For years, the foundation has been known informally as "Livestrong" -- the word inscribed on its signature yellow wristbands. But its full name had included Armstrong's name.  The foundation is now officially called the "Livestrong Foundation". Armstrong founded the cancer charity in 1997, after he was diagnosed with testicular cancer.
