VIDEO: Bay Area babysitters hit with child pornography charges

(KRON) — Two suspects that the FBI says worked with children have been charged with multiple counts of child pornography.

Bryan Petersen and Ryan Michael Spencer were indicted last week by a federal grand jury after being arrested in late April.

The charges include conspiracy to distribute child pornography, distribution of child pornography and possession of child porn.

The FBI says Petersen worked as a babysitter, chess coach and tutor in Tiburon. Spencer as a babysitter, camp counselor and a teacher in training in Aptos.

The FBI started investigating the case after a witness came forward reporting that 24-year-old Petersen had child porn on his computer. In court documents, the FBI reports it found Petersen received thousands of child pornography images and videos from 19-year-old Spencer.
