A 40-year-old man accused of exposing himself to a group of nine middle school-aged children while he was chaperoning a school field trip is being investigated by the Summit County Sheriff's department. 

According to the Summit County Sheriff's Office, the incident happened at Camp Y-Noah in September 2016.

On Jan. 30, Scott Wuensch, 40 of Grafton, was charged with public indecency, disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, and disorderly conduct.

Police say Wuensch purposely exposed himself, videotaped a simulated sex act and made offensive gestures towards minors who were on the trip.

Because the parent was a volunteer, the Midview East Intermediate School District can't investigate the allegations.

Wuensch passed the BCI and FBI background check and was properly vetted to attend field trips with students.

“The safety of our students is our number one priority,” said Superintendent Dr. Bruce Willingham. “Last week, it was brought to my attention that a volunteer parent chaperone allegedly acted inappropriately toward students during the Camp Y-Noah field trip, and our district immediately responded by calling the sheriff’s department.”
