Teachers aide charged in boys sex case
WALDORF, Md. — An HIV-positive teachers aide and track coach described as a “predator” by a county prosecutor now faces more than 100 felony counts of child sex abuse and other offenses.
The 119 counts against 30-year-old Carlos Deangelo Bell include infecting or trying to infect three schoolboys with HIV, filming them in sex acts, giving them marijuana and other crimes from May 2015 to June 2017, according to news reports.
Charles County prosecutor Tony Covington said 11 of the 24 male victims have yet to be identified. The FBI is also helping investigate the case. Sheriff Troy Berry said a video on one of Bell’s electronic devices shows him appearing to have sex with a boy inside a classroom.
Bell’s attorney, Jeffrey Griffith, said Bell is looking forward to fighting the allegations.
