The number of children who police say were victimized by an elementary school volunteer arrested on child-porn charges has grown to 17.
Prince George’s County police announced an additional victim — up from 16 when officials last updated the news media — in a Twitter message Tuesday morning, noting that detectives are continuing to conduct interviews in the case.
Deonte Carraway, 22, of Glenarden was arrested this month on 10 counts of felony child-pornography charges. Carraway admitted to creating videos of children between ages 9 and 13 performing various sexual acts, charging documents say. Carraway sometimes can be seen or heard directing the children in some of the approximately 40 videos, police said.
Carraway, a volunteer and former employee of Judge Sylvania W. Woods Elementary School in Glenarden, filmed many of the videos on school grounds in the middle of the school day, police said.
The FBI is involved in the investigation. Angered parents question how Carraway was allowed such unfettered access to students and how the abuse was able to continue since at least the start of last year.
