SANTA ANA – A 25-year-old janitor was convicted Thursday of hiding a video camera in a women’s restroom stall of a Santa Ana elementary school.
A jury found Corona resident Angel Rojas guilty of two misdemeanors for using a concealed video camera to tape a person in partial dress and annoying or molesting a child under 18, court records said. A third misdemeanor for attempting to sexually exploit a child was dismissed, according to the court.
According to the District Attorney’s Office, Rojas was working at Glenn L. Martin Elementary School during the summer of 2012. Prosecutors said he would lock several of the restrooms around campus, directing women and girls to one specific restroom where he had hidden an iPod Nano equipped with a video recorder.
An employee of the summer-school program found the device, which contained a video of her in the bathroom, prosecutors said. Santa Ana police arrested Rojas on July 25.
