Former SCAN employee charged with sexual performance by a child
A former SCAN employee is facing charges after an investigation resulted in the discovery of illicit pictures of minors.
Twenty-five year old Andrea A. Mata was arrested in this case and is facing two counts of sexual performance by a child.
According to police reports, the investigation started back in March after SCAN called police to report an outcry from the two victims.
According to police, Mata had allegedly taken the pictures in question, she was part of a program that scan has for young teenage girls.
After a thorough investigation, officers obtained sufficient evidence to charge her in the case.
Mata is at the Webb County Jail under a $40,000 bond.
We spoke to the executive vice president of SCAN about this incident. He says Mata was let go before the allegations surfaced and after she was terminated, someone outcried and they made the report with authorities.
SCAN says it's their priority to take care of young children and those who are under their care.
They say it is really sad that someone will do something like this, but their priority was to protect the kids.
