A technology worker embroiled in a webcam spying scandal says a student suing a Pennsylvania school district was not authorized to take a school laptop home and therefore had no right to electronic privacy.

Technology coordinator Carol Cafiero says Lower Merion School District officials activated the tracking software because sophomore Blake Robbins had lost or damaged several other laptops and failed to pay a required insurance fee.

Cafiero's court filing this week also denies his claims that she may be a "voyeur."

Robbins sued the district in February over the remotely activated webcam pictures.

Lower Merion acknowledges the program secretly captured more than 50,000 photographs and screen shots to track missing computers.

The FBI is investigating.
