A drug counselor at Salinas High School let students have sex in his office on campus and during schools hours while he secretly videotaped them
, police said Tuesday.
, 34, of Salinas, used his position as a counselor to get students out of class to spend more time with him, and allowed students to have sex with each other in his office, police Sgt. Christopher Lane said.
"Detectives were able to locate 14 videos
made by Olivares in his office at Salinas High," Lane said.
"The videos are of teenage students engaged in sexual activity with each other within Olivares' office, during school hours," Lane said. "It appears the videos were taken without the knowledge of the victim students, and Olivares is not in the room at the time."
Olivares was arrested last week on suspicion that he sexually molested a 14-year-old boy in his office during multiple incidents.
On Tuesday, police said new evidence and information on Olivares' relationships with students, and how he used his position of authority to create child porn videos, surfaced when they searched his house in Salinas.
Police said they identified at least two students who they believe were victimized, and are working closely with Salinas High administrators to identify more victims.
He is employed by Sunrise House, an organization that counsels teenagers on drug and alcohol abuse. Although Olivares has worked as a counselor at Salinas High for five years and has on office in the school's building, he is not an employee of the Salinas Union High School District.
A red flag was raised when a 14-year-old boy's parents became concerned about a change in their son's behavior, police Cmdr. Vince Maiorana said.
The parents looked to find answers on their son's Facebook page, and found disturbing private Facebook messages sent between the counselor and their son
, Maiorana said.
Several Salinas High students told KSBW that they did not feel comfortable around Olivares because he was "creepy,"
and would get too close in his relationships with teens.
Other students vehemently defend the counselor.
Tensions have risen on campus this week between students standing up for Olivares and students speaking against him.
On Tuesday, police said they also found child pornography on Olivares' home computer that he downloaded as photos and videos from the Internet.
