Former Syracuse media director Roger Springfield, fired in December by the university, has been formally charged with unlawful surveillance after being accused of secretly videotaping Syracuse athletes -- including football players -- in their locker rooms. It gets ickier, if you'd like to read as far down as Springfield's attorney's thoughts on the matter:

The defense lawyer said he didn't want to disclose his defense strategy at this point.

But he also said he did not believe the prosecution would be able to argue the players had an expectation of privacy in the locker room after games.

Syracuse officials initiated the investigation of Springfield in December after discovering one of the videos. The university has since released a statement that reads, in part, "Our priority has been, and will continue to be, the well-being of our student-athletes. We are in direct contact with all of these specific current and former student-athletes, and the University is reaching out to offer them full access to appropriate support and assistance during this time."
