A former Salem volleyball coach accused of using a hidden video camera to record underage players nude and partially undressed now faces 17 additional charges over a hidden camera in a church where players were trying on uniforms.
A Salem grand jury on Friday indicted Dewayne Barger , 37, on 17 counts of unlawfully filming a person under the age of 18, according to Salem Commonwealth’s Attorney Tom Bowers. The indictments were sealed until Wednesday evening.
Barger, who was free on a $50,000 bond, turned himself in to police this morning and was released on the existing bond, according to a Salem police news release.
The charges are on top of four counts of possession of child pornography and four counts of manufacturing child pornography, which stemmed from a hidden “pen camera” discovered in his apartment by adult acquaintances of Barger, who turned the camera into police. The camera contained video of teenage girls showering in Barger’s residence, police have said.
Those charges are still pending in Salem Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court, where Barger awaits a preliminary hearing on them June 3.
The new charges involve the recording of teenage girls who played for a travel team Barger coached for the NRV Juniors club, a police news release said. On Oct. 14, 2012, players from the team came to an unidentified Salem church Barger had been given permission to use to try on uniforms.
Barger also coached at Salem High School from 2006 through 2011 and more recently at Eastern Montgomery High School, but his charges so far have not been linked to either of those teams.
