PHOENIX -- A Valley school bus driver and his wife are in jail after some disturbing accusations against them.

That school bus driver, Brian DiCamillo, is accused of child molestation, child pornography  and child prostitution. His wife, Jennifer DiCamillo, is accused of knowing about at least some of those crimes and not reporting them.

“Oh God it's disgusting it's all disgusting,” said neighbor Rosemary Masterson.  “She was an enabler.”

Police said all the alleged crimes happened at the couple’s home and on the Internet.  And it was only brought to their attention after a 10-year-old boy visited the home earlier this month

“Brian DiCamillo offered the child an amount of money for sex,” said Phoenix Police officer James Holmes. 

According to court records Brian offered the boy one dollar for sex and allegedly showed him adult pornography.

"The child became afraid of Mr. DiCamillo and he fled from the home,” said Holmes.

Upon further investigation police say they learned of a second boy, 6 years old.

“Over the last two years Mr. DiCamillo has been sexually abusing this child, taking intimate photographs of the child and sharing those photos on the Internet,” said Holmes.

Worse yet police say Brian’s wife Jennifer witnessed the molestation at least twice and never reported it.

“She told Brian to stop and he did and he swore he would not do it again,” said Holmes.

Many neighbors find that part of the story most disheartening.

“Oh it's disgusting it's almost more disgusting then doing it because it's a sick mind to begin with that does it but how much sicker is it to allow it,” said Masterson.

Now Brian DiCamillo is being held on no bond, charged with the sexual exploitation of a minor, child prostitution, and supplying obscene material to a minor.

Jennifer DiCamillo is booked for child abuse that is not protecting the child or reporting the crime.

“I hope they get the max they can get and I hope she does too,” said Masterson.

Both Brian and Jenifer DiCamillo are employed by the Deer Valley Unified School District. 

The district said the safety of their students is their number one concern and neither of the suspects are actually working there during the course of this investigation and of course if convicted steps will be taken to terminate their employment.
