hey school volunteer accused of of abusing at least 17 victims.i he threatened one of the victime the child did not give into hiss demands. >> the defendant allegedly tookt a child out of classroom to ao dressing room in the building bd and instructed the child to take off his clothes.th according to the allegations in the complaint, the child resis resisted, didn't want to do it,i at which point the defendant det threatened him if he didn't did' comply, the defendant wouldnt wu report into the principal or the police.ce. >> if convicted, carraway faceac as minimum of sentence of 15ef years in prison for each countah but what else do these new thesw charges mean in the indication.o >> joining us now criminalmil defense a sew scott bolden. bole good morning, scott. >> good morning.>> g >> white federal charges in thii case. >> the feds have juries dick dk actually.al you can have child pornographyhy crimes at the state level and at the federal level and here he's' been charged with eight countshu of production of child pornography of
and more importantly it is justs the product, these filming off these kids engaged in these acts and with mr. carraway the production itself. i the other thing is, they carry r 15 years maximum sentence and there are eight he can spendan e about 120 years in jail. easier to prove and easy to t charge undon't need the kids to get on the stand to testify ifif the case gets tried.ri >> that's key part there. there that i think any attorney would be looking at in that case. cas >> sure.. >> if -- do you proceed with tht case in federal court and locall court just in case or do youdoou simply let the federal court override in many case. >> you can but a lot of discussions going on between tht feds and state' attorney. aorne it was interesting that thentert state's attorney for prince pri george's county was present at that joint press conference forf this announce they'll continue n to dialogue.to dia the other thing that's importanr for listening audience to consider is that deonte carrawaa is talk. we an interview with fox he tale to the investigator made a lotot
his bill is like a million mli dollars which is given low all a that come out.. they'll decide who will go firsr those state charges may or mayrm not go forward because if hesefh pleads guilty to all eight eig counts if you will he's going tt be locked up for a long time.e the real test how we help these families move forward. for this is a parent's nightmare ana so the state's attorney and thed feds will be heavily involved i that as well. as w >> you've been involved in manyn cases yourself over the years f somebody is that free with thert flow of information as far as aa suspect is in a case like this,, better chance of maybe getting y plea and not taking this case tc trial or does that -- is therest no correlation between that? bet >> certainly make it easier toie get a conviction and harder toat get an acquittal but the but the evidence here appears to beo be overwhelming. so we'll just have to see whatew mr. car away does. d he'll have a lawyer courtyeou appointed if necessary.sary. and he'll be advised.is but the evidence appearing ateag least in the public domain seems to be overwhelming quiet frankly and really really problematic.bl look for
start to begin or start to flow against prince george's county and the public education systems as well as some of these otherth community centers and even a church because this individual seem to have a great deal ofl o access, control over these kidsk to the point where they were performing acts knowing they kne were being filmed and stuff sodf they'll be civil lawsuits andsua we'll watch closely what happenh on the criminal side. i expect a short turn around pleas and mr. carraway to go aoo way for quite long time.on t >> is it easier to get atoet a conviction or plea based on the sheer multitude of victims inti this a case like this opposed td one victim in a case. a cas >> it helps a lot because b there's a pattern and practice. it also helps that there won'ton be -- it will be tough for theoe defense to plea bargain or try y to strike some type of deal. d this deal i think the feds the f because there's overwhelmingverm evidence as well as the statee a are going to go hard in regard e to any discussions they're t having with carraway and whatnda
>> if it were to be a county c case opposed to federal casealae would the victim need to testiff in that case? is that the thatt difference between the two. the. >> that's one of the differences the state charges are engagingg in child pornography or engaging in immediate feel ya acts, if a, you will.you w which means you have to show s element that the acts occurredsr and then the victims would have to testify normally. oftentimes, though, because of,h the stress on both sides, and, given the overwhelming evidencee here in regard to carraway, it is my hope someone who isho prosecuted these types of cases that there is a plea and that ad that doesn't have to exacerbatee what the children and the childa families have been throughbth already. >> talking nine, 10, 11-year-olo kids. >> absolutely. >> don't need added stress ond s them.th >> it's always tough.>>t's >> scott, thank you.hank y >> you're welcome. you'rwel >> let's send it over to tuck tc get a look at the forecast. for >> light rain and cool lht r temperatures in the low 40s buts the potential for very heavy hey rain and even thunderstormhundst activity this aftern
