HAMILTON, Mass.—A student at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary has been charged with secretly videotaping a female student in her dorm room.

Daniel G. Richards was granted $1,000 bail after pleading not guilty at his arraignment Monday to breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony and unlawful wiretapping. He was also ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim.

Prosecutors say police responded to the woman's dorm room in late July after she found a recording device. A subsequent investigation led to a search of the 24-year-old Richard's room in a different dorm and his car.

A spokesman for the seminary tells The Salem News that Richards had been suspended and is no longer living on campus.

A telephone listing for Richards could not be found. It could not immediately be determined if he has an attorney.
