HIV-infected school aide accused of sexually victimizing 42 children in Maryland”

Officials say a Charles County grand jury returned a 206-count indictment Friday against Carlos Deangelo Bell of Waldorf. Several of the incidents were allegedly captured on video.

"The times of the charged casualties at the time the offenses were conferred run from 11 years of age to 17 years of age", the express lawyer's office said.

Bell had worked as an indoor track coach at Maurice J. McDonough High School in Pomfret and La Plata High School in La Plata, according to investigators.

Bell is HIV positive and five counts in the new indictment accuse him of trying to transmit the virus to his victims, People reports. He was also a teaching assistant at Benjamin Stoddert Middle School, where numerous alleged crimes took place.

The indictment claims Bell's digital devices were seized by police that same month. He allegedly sexually exploited three children in the six months between the investigation beginning and his arrest, and allegedly solicited sex from a fourth child.

Some of the alleged sexual assaults were recorded with Bell's cellphone, the indictment alleges.

Police are still working to identify 14 of the underage boys who allegedly appear in the videos. Police say that Bell assaulted at least several of his victims without using protection, according to FOX 5, potentially exposing them to the virus.

Bell is now being held without bond and is scheduled to go to trial on January 8.

In open Court today, Bell was served with this latest indictment and served with the State's notice that, if he is convicted of certain crimes alleged in the indictment, the State will be seeking a life sentence.

The State Attorney's office said the charges against Bell include: 22 counts of sexual abuse of a minor, 19 counts of second-degree sex offense, 19 counts of second-degree sex offenses, 7 counts of third-degree sex offense, 97 counts of child pornography and other offenses. It was unclear Tuesday if Bell has hired an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
