Teacher accused of bugging classroom

FLUSHING, Mich. -- Prosecutors have charged a middle school science teacher with bugging a colleague's classroom. Police accuse Anne Marie Harvey, 44, of planting a wireless listening device on the back of a chair after her daughter complained about problems she was having with another teacher at Flushing Middle School. Police said the bugged teacher found the device and reported it May 18.

Harvey was charged this week with attempted eavesdropping, a misdemeanor with a penalty of up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. Her arraignment was scheduled for June 25 in Flushing, about 60 miles northwest of Detroit.

Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said the case is unusual and the charge is appropriate.

"The victim in this case was violated," Leyton told The Flint Journal for a story Friday.

Harvey, who has been with the district for 10 years, was placed on paid leave. A Flushing schools official told the newspaper the district would take no action until the court case is resolved.

Frank Yiannatji, Harvey's attorney, told The Associated Press he has not been given the police reports so he has not determined if the charge is appropriate.

"She's very well respected ... not just (in) her teaching community, but the community in general," he said.
