JANITOR CONVICTED FOR PLACING HIDDEN VIDEO CAMERA INSIDE WOMENS BATHROOM AT AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

SANTA ANA – A janitor was convicted today for placing a hidden video camera inside a women’s bathroom stall at an elementary school. Angel Rojas, 25, Corona, was found guilty by a jury of one misdemeanor count each of disorderly conduct for secretly filming another, and child annoyance. Rojas faces a maximum sentence of one year and six months in jail, $6,000 fine, and mandatory lifetime sex offender registration at his sentencing, May 14, 2013, at 9:00 a.m. in Department C-51, Central Justice Center, Santa Ana.

In June 2012, Rojas was working as a janitor during the summer for the Santa Ana Unified School District.

On July 16, 2012, Rojas worked at Glenn L. Martin Elementary School in Santa Ana. Rojas closed down several of the women’s bathrooms around the school by locking the doors in order to direct women and children into a specific bathroom. Rojas entered the specific women’s bathroom and hid an iPad Nano equipped with a video recorder inside the restroom.

Jane Doe, who worked for a summer school program at the school, entered the bathroom stall and found the device. The device was turned in to the Santa Ana Unified School District Police Department, who investigated this case, and discovered one video recording of Jane Doe in the bathroom and arrested Rojas on July 25, 2012.

Rojas’ lifetime sex offender registration will bar him from entering County recreational areas and City parks which have passed the Sex Offender Ordinance.

Deputy District Attorney Cheryl Gold is prosecuting the case.
