VIDEO: Santa Clara CFO arrested for allegedly possessing child pornography

David Bruce Lang


SANTA CLARA (KRON) — A Chief Financial Officer in Santa Clara has been arrested for allegedly possessing child pornography, according to police Lt. Dan Moreno.

Police arrested David Bruce Lang, 63, of Santa Clara, at around 7 a.m. Thursday at his home on Bret Harte Ct. He was booked into Santa Clara Main Jail.

Lang is the CFO at the Bill Wilson Center. He also volunteered as an assistant Scout Master for a Sunnyvale Boy Scout troop in the 1970s, police said.

As CFO of the Bill Wilson Center for the last five years, Lang has had “no direct contact with kids whatsoever,” CEO Sparky Harlan said.

The Bill Wilson Center performs a general fingerprint-based background check on new hires, but does not check a child abuse index for administrative positions like Lang’s.

Additionally, police told Harlan Thursday that Lang had no criminal history.

“We are fully cooperating with the police in any way we can,” Harlan said. “We’ll be forthcoming as we find out anything else.”

Prior to being named CFO, Lang had served as a volunteer board member for the Bill Wilson Center since 2004.

Lang is being held on $5,000 bail. Anyone with information about the case had been asked to call police Detective Frank Hagg at (408) 615-4821.

No other information has been made available by police.
