An 18-year-old man has been freed on bond after police said he recorded a partially undressed boy in a Huntley High School bathroom stall and sent the video to others.
Jonathan M. Trunda, of the 3600 block of Bunker Hill Drive, Algonquin, posted bond Wednesday morning and was released from the McHenry County Jail.
The teen is accused of recording a juvenile boy without consent while the alleged victim was in a men’s bathroom stall at Huntley High School, according to a criminal complaint filed in McHenry County court.
Trunda then sent the video to other people through the social media app Snapchat, the complaint stated.
His attorney, Edward Donahue, could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon.
Trunda is charged in McHenry County court with unauthorized video recording of a minor, a Class 3 felony, and disseminating a video of a minor, a Class 2 felony. The latter charge typically carries a three- to seven-year penalty.
Representatives from the Huntley Police Department and Huntley School District 158 could not be reached for comment Friday. It is unclear whether Trunda attends the high school.
Huntley High School students are barred from using cellphones and other electronic devices “in any manner that disrupts the educational environment or violates the rights of others,” according to the student handbook. “Disruptive” uses of electronics include taking photographs in locker rooms or bathrooms, according to the handbook.
Students who violate the policy risk a period of detention, suspension, expulsion or other school-imposed penalties.
Trunda is due in court April 3.
