Towson diving coach charged after phone found in locker room

TOWSON — Officials at Towson University say the school’s head diving coach has been indicted on charges in connection with a cellphone found in a women’s locker room.

Forty-three-year-old Maureen Mead was indicted by a grand jury on Monday. According to the university, she faces charges of interception of communication, a “peeping tom” violation and altering physical evidence.

Last month, school officials said team members found the phone containing videos of the student-athletes changing inside the locker room.

Mead was placed on administrative leave in October, pending the investigation. It isn’t clear whether she has an attorney.

The university said in a statement Monday that it was cooperating with the investigation and takes the safety of its student-athletes very seriously.

The university also announced that it has suspended competition until January.
