PHOENIX -- A husband and wife who worked at the Deer Valley Unified School District have been charged with multiple felony counts for their role in a child sex crime case.
Phoenix Police Detectives from the Arizona Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and Child Help USA arrested Brian Dicamillo, 39, after receiving a report that he had shown a 10-year-old boy pornographic material.
On June 16, Dicamillo reportedly invited the boy to his residence at 4900 West Wagoner Rd. where he offered the child money to play a game and have sex. Dicamillo is also accused of showing the child a pornographic website on his computer.
The boy fled the home and told his parents what had taken place.
Upon further investigation, authorities discovered that Dicamillo had engaged in sexual conduct with a 6-year-old boy for the past two years. He had also reportedly produced photographic images of the child that he may have shared over the Internet.
Brian Dicamillo's wife, Jennifer Dicamillo, 39, has stated that she recently witnessed her husband sexually abusing the 6-year-old on multiple occasions. Brian Dicamillo reportedly told his spouse several times that “he would not do it again.”
Brian and Jennifer Dicamillo were arrested after authorities served a search warrant at their home.
Brian Dicamillo is facing several charges including sexual exploitation of a minor and furnishing obscene materials to a minor. Jennifer Dicamillo has been charged with two counts of child abuse (failure to report/protect).
The Deer Valley Unified School District has released a statement explaining that since the Dicamillo’s aren’t currently under contract they won’t be placed on administrative leave with pay.
“In this case, the employees arrested are off of contract so there is no administrative leave that will occur. If convicted, a statement of charged will be given to the Board requesting termination for both employees. The safety of all students remains a top priority for the district,” the School District said in a statement.
Brian Dicamillo was a bus driver for the Deer Valley Unified School District. There’s no word on what position Jennifer Dicamillo held.
