Los Banos couple faces child molestation charges

FRESNO, Calif.

Los Banos Police arrested /*Andrew Mejia*/, 48, last week. His wife Kelly was also arrested for destroying evidence and endangering the welfare of a teenager.

Police say Andrew Mejia secretly videotaped a 17-year-old at his home. The couple work as groundskeepers at the Los Banos Unified School District and have been placed on paid administrative leave.

The Los Banos Unified Superintendent, Steve Tietjen told Action News, "Although the occurrence did not occur at school, the allegation of molesting a minor under the age of 17 is of course very serious, especially serious for a school employee because the concern by all parents is, will my children be safe."

Investigators would not say if the victim is related to the suspects. They don't believe there are other victims at this time.
