MD teacher’s aide gave kids phones to record themselves, sources say
WASHINGTON — The former Prince George’s County teacher’s aide accused of making child pornography reportedly gave cellphones to elementary school students to record themselves, sources say.
Deonte Carraway, who volunteered at Judge Sylvania Woods Elementary, gave cellphones to at least several students to videotape themselves, a source close to the investigation tells NBC 4.
Carraway, 22, is accused of taping children ages 9-13 performing sex acts at the school and other places.
Police say he had dozens of videos and admitted making explicit videos of children. According to police, 17 victims have come forward.
Carraway was arrested Feb. 5 and is charged with 10 felony counts of manufacturing child pornography, child sex abuse and second degree sexual offense. He’s being held on $1 million bond.
NBC 4 reports changes are being made at the school.
The school now has a School Resource Officer and is installing 26 cameras inside the school. Visitors also have to show identification, and a new acting principal has been announced since Principal Michelle Williams was put on administrative leave.
