Judge Rejects Sussex Tech Inappropriate Photo Suspect’s Requests

A judge has rejected requests from Elias Stephens, the suspect accused of taking illegal photographs of students at the Sussex Technical High School homecoming dance.

In a Wednesday hearing, the judge told Stephens he would not lower his bail, and added terms to what will be required of any bail bondsman who provides Stephens with what he needs to get out of jail.

Prosecutors tell WGMD that Stephens took photos under students’ clothes at the Sussex Tech dance. He faces 80 counts of privacy invasion.

Prosecutors also expressed flight risks concerning Stephens, who moved to Mississippi following the incident, and prior to his arrest.
