More charges for science camp employee arrested for child porn


SANTA CLARA COUNTY (KRON) — The science camp employee who was arrested for child pornography last week is now facing additional charges.

According to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office, Edgar Covarrubias is also accused of molesting a 10-year old boy at Walden West Camp.

Authorities also say that the man had more than 600 pictures on his computer and phone.

Covarrubias had lived and worked at the Saratoga based science camp since 2013. He has since been fired. Camp officials say that none of the man’s jobs required any interaction with students.

The DA’s office says the new charges came after a child forward alleging he was molested.
