Is this how Joplin R-8 employee took pornographic photos of students?

(From Oct. 16, 2013) The issue has still not been addressed by Joplin R-8 Superintendent C. J. Huff, though court documents indicate he has been aware of since February, but how did former Joplin R-8 technology department employee Ronny Justin Myers end up with pornographic photos of 10 Joplin students on his laptop.

Myers admitted to authorities that he had the photos on February 15. Four of the students were subsequently identified, according to a sentencing memorandum, which indicates the police were working with R-8 officials.

One of Myers' responsibilities was monitoring the laptops that are given to all Joplin High School students, Though no specifics were mentioned in the sentencing memorandum on how Myers obtained the pornographic photos, this video from today's Katie Couric show reveals how easy it is for someone who knows technology (and Myers was receiving $67,000 a year from taxpayers for that knowledge) to take control of the webcam on a computer.
