A former Skiatook girls' basketball coach pleaded innocent Thursday to charges that he placed a video camera in a locker room and taped girls as they undressed.

Harry Red Eagle Junior faces six counts alleging lewd acts to a child under age 16, procurement of obscene material and attempting to procure obscene material.

An Osage County District Court official says Red Eagle was in the process Thursday afternoon of being released on $10,000 bond. A preliminary hearing has been set for December 1st.

Skiatook police began investigating Red Eagle after a videotape aired August 7th on The News on Six. Red Eagle was seen bending over and looking into the lens while hiding a camera in a locker.

That tape showed no nudity, but Osage County District Attorney Larry Stuart said Wednesday another tape that surfaced about a week ago was more explicit.
