Former Teacher Sentenced for Attempted Possession of Child Porn,
Use of Concealed Camera 

DATE:  April 30, 2018

CASE:  Scott Macmillan (Case #17FE001087)

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Bruce Chang, Cyber Crimes Unit

The Honorable Robert Twiss sentenced Scott Macmillan to 30 days county jail, 3 years probation and required him to register as a sex offender.  On October 19, 2017, Macmillan pled no contest to attempted possession of child pornography, attempted use of a concealed camera to take photos of an adult victim for sexual purposes, and use of a concealed camera to take photos of a minor for sexual purposes.

Macmillan was a teacher at Heron School in Natomas.  Several students noticed he appeared to be taking photos of female students’ private parts with his cell phone. Some students started watching Macmillan and managed to record him as he used his phone to record a 12-year-old student under her desk.  One student notified school authorities, who notified the Sacramento Police Department.  Police found Macmillan’s phone in his car with multiple images of what appeared to be the chest and genital areas of girls.  An adult staff member also reported that Macmillan had approached her with his cell phone as if he was trying to take a photo or video under her skirt.
