Luke Gildea, a 17-year-old student at Crystal Lake Central High School in Crystal Lake, Illinois, has been charged with two counts of unauthorized video recording after a small camera was found inside the boys' locker room at the school.

According to NBC Chicago, the tiny pin-hole camera was discovered by an unidentified student.

Parents were sent a letter that said a school resource officer and police officers searched school lockers during the investigation.

Prosecutors said on Friday that at least one victim recorded on the hidden camera was under the age of 18. 

If Gildea is convicted, he would face two to five years in prison and a $25,000 fine.

Gildea's father reassured the media on Friday that his son is "a good kid."

The school is providing social workers, counselors and psychologists for any students who may need counseling.
