A former Selah Junior High School student is suing a former teacher who has been convicted of voyerism.

In late February, David McMillen, 55, was sentenced to more than two years in prison on voyeurism charges. Yakima County Superior Court Judge Gayle Harthcock said at the time the former science teacher violated the trust parents and the community had placed in him. In 2011, he put a camera under the
