MORGAN HILL, Calif. (AP) - A San Francisco Bay Area YMCA worker accused of sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl he was tasked with watching is facing additional charges involving two other girls under his care.
Morgan Hill police say prosecutors are expected to file the additional charges against 20-year-old Nick Lhermine (lehr-mi-Nee) on Tuesday afternoon.
Lhermine is currently charged with committing sexual acts with the 6-year-old on July 12 and possessing child pornography involving a 17-year-old. Capt. Shane Palsgrove says police discovered images of the 17-year-old victim on Lhermine's phone.
Since then, two other girls have come forward - a 7-year-old and 5-year-old. Palsgrove says Lhermine molested the 7-year-old and took sexually explicit photographs of the 5-year-old that were recovered from his cellphone.
He says the Public Defender's Office is representing Lhermine. A call there was not immediately returned.
