Chiot teacher used sky pen to film girls in bathroom www.privateofficer.com
Aldrin Jayson “A.J.” Nicolas, 26, used a “spy pen” that contained a camera in the bathroom until the girls found it, said deputy April Skalland.
Nicolas taught with the San Jose-based Vivace Youth Chorus and Salinas High School. He has been suspended from the chorus and placed on administrative leave at the school, deputies said.
Nicolas was with a group from the youth chorus on Saturday and Sunday at the Pajaro Dunes Vacation Rentals near Watsonville. The alleged victims were ages 13 to 17, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
After the pen was found, investigators determined that it belonged to Nicolas. Nicolas was arrested about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday on suspicion of producing child porn.
He is being held in Santa Cruz County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.
Investigators said they do not believe that Nicolas victimized any students at Salinas High.
