Controversy[edit]

Don Samuelson, a professor at University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, was arrested and released on $20,000 bond. According to a police report, Samuelson used a camera pen to film two female students on four separate occasions in 2013. He claimed he secretly filmed under the females clothing to determine whether they had improperly failed to wear undergarments to class, "acknowledging that this activity was 'inappropriate.'" After the police seized Samuelson's videotaping device, they found "upskirt" and "downshirt" videos along with footage of "females working in Samuelson's laboratory and/or meeting with him in his office."[1][2][3]
