Student Charged for Video Recording in SAE Bathroom

By Katie Oglesby, Editor-in-Chief

Todd Isenburg, former Gettysburg College student, has been charged with 18 counts of misdemeanor invasion of privacy, according to the docket. He was also charged with one count each of disorderly conduct and harassment. 

On Oct. 24, Vice President for College Life and Dean of Students Anne Ehrlich sent out a campus-wide email explaining that Campus Safety received a report that individuals using a bathroom in Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) were recorded by a hidden phone. 

An article from the Gettysburg Times said that according to Gettysburg Borough Police affidavits, a female student found the phone in a cabinet when she went looking for toilet paper. 

Isenburg was identified setting up the phone in one of the videos found. He was a member of SAE, and in October, engageGettysburg showed that he was their Not In Our House representative. Not In Our House is a campaign to prevent sexual assault. 

The president of SAE declined to comment on the charges. 

According to the Gettysburg Times, a hearing is scheduled for Feb. 1.

On Nov. 10, Ehrlich said “the individual involved” left the College, though at the time did not name Isenburg. She said SAE was found to have not been responsible for the incident.
