Another court hearing has been set in the child exploitation and voyeurism case against former Boonville Middle School teacher Andrew Emmons. 

Emmons is facing 42 felony counts, accused of hiding a camera inside a girls locker room and a faculty restroom.

After a nearly four hour hearing, Honorable judge David O. Kelley set another hearing to rule on motions regarding the discovery of evidence of this case. More specifically, what videos and pictures the defense should have access to and where they get them from.

About two dozen people were in the courtroom for the hearing on Wednesday. A detective with Indiana State Police took the stand to testify about how he retrieved evidence from Emmons' computer and other electronic devices.

What's on five evidence discs, the prosecution says, contain videos and images taken from inside a girls locker room and a faculty restroom.

Defense Attorney Anthony Long argues the defense should have no issues obtaining evidence to prepare for their side of this case.

"The number of separate and distinct videos is a critical issue in this case. I am convinced that they understand it and are trying to mask it in some way so that we won't get it or they just don't understand what the law is," Long says.

Prosecutor Joann Krantz had no comment Wednesday night following the hearing.

The next hearing is set for June 17.
