The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office Thursday asked for the public's help in locating other children who may have been victimized by a 59-year-old Sunnyvale child pornography suspect named James Carroll.
Investigators said that Carroll worked at several local schools, both private and public, in Santa Clara County and had been involved in youth ministries, youth counseling and missions work at several local churches. But the sheriff's office declined to identify which schools Carroll was employed by or what churches he was involved in. Carroll worked as a janitor and other jobs in the schools, and had traveled with local Christian churches on missions to Mexico.
Carroll is out on bail, after being arrested on Dec. 15, 2008 for suspicion of possession of child porn and distributing or offering to distribute child porn, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's office. He was arrested after local investigators were tipped off by a Pennsylvania investigation into child pornography.
Anyone with any information regarding James Carroll is asked to contact Detective Tony Hickman with the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office Sexual Assault Unit at 408-808-4500.
