Madison teacher charged in hidden camera investigation resigns

The Madison East teacher charged with recording students with a hidden camera has resigned.

David Kruchten, 37, of Cottage Grove, is charged in federal court with seven counts of attempting to use a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of the conduct.

He has pleaded not guilty in the case.

A separate complaint filed in Hennepin County Court claims Kruchten hid cameras in the rooms of students during a DECA trip to Minneapolis in December that were hidden inside air fresheners and smoke detectors, prosecutors say.

In an email to Madison East parents, interim Superintendent Jane Belmore said that Kruchten has resigned, and because of that, the district's review is closed.
