[Editor’s Note: We’ve been prompted to restore this story about another Civil Air Patrol pilot politician with a predilection for young boys.]
On December 28th 20011, CBS News New York reported that Civil Air Patrol Pilot, assistant middle school principal and volunteer with a local Catholic high school had been arraigned for secretly videotaping teenage boys as they showered at a central New Jersey high school.
Patrick J. Lott, 54, of Somerville, faces numerous charges, including child endangerment and invasion of privacy.
During a review of files seized under warrant at his home on 13 and 16 December, detectives found several videos of nude teenagers showering in the Immaculata High School boys’ communal shower area.
Nine of the young boys identified in the videos are currently under the age of sixteen. The detectives also found the area where the camera had been secretly installed for video recording. These illicit videos were collected over a period of nearly three years beginning in January of 2008.

Winning coach. Beloved school administrator. Politician. Civil Air Patrol veteran. A father of two stepsons and a daughter.
These are accomplishments and accolades on Patrick Lott’s resume.
So it came as a shock to those who knew him that Lott — who for so many years had been entrusted with students and athletes — had been arrested and charged with videotaping naked teenage boys showering at Immaculata High School in Somerville.

Little room for error in New York’s crowded skies
The air corridor is like New Jersey’s congested Garden State Parkway, said Patrick Lott, a pilot with the New Jersey Civil Air Patrol, during an interview on Philadelphia radio station WKYW. If you’re not paying attention, things can go very wrong, he said.
