A former elementary school volunteer who was already facing several charges related to allegedly producing child pornography was indicted Monday on two additional sex charges by a federal grand jury, the Washington Post reports.

Deonte Carraway, 23, of Glenarden, Md., is now facing 15 federal counts of sexual exploitation of a minor to produce child pornography, including material involving students as young as 9.

According to the Post, the additional charges stem from an additional child as well as from video that was already known to county investigators and does not increase the number of known alleged victims.

The federal charges are separate from local charges Carraway faces in Prince George’s County, Md. A local grand jury indicted him on 270 counts of sex crimes and child pornography involving 23 children.

Carraway is accused of giving cellphones to the children and communicating with them through an anonymous social media app. Carraway allegedly used the app to solicit videos and photos of children performing sexual acts at an elementary school, children’s homes, a church and a local recreation center, the Post reports.

Carraway’s trial in federal court is scheduled for March 14, the Post notes.
