CEDAR CITY -- A former middle school teacher charged with voyeurism has struck a plea deal with prosecutors.

Court records show that during an appearance Monday in 5th District Court, Matthew Scott Adams pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation of a minor and voyeurism by electronic means, both second-degree felonies. He also pleaded guilty to an amended misdemeanor charge of voyeurism.

In exchange for the plea, court records said that Iron County prosecutors dropped nine misdemeanor voyeurism counts. Adams is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 8.

Adams, 31, was accused of videotaping people through blinds and windows of their homes. He was fired from his job at Cedar Middle School shortly after being arrested.
