James Carlile (11/08/1956) Resident of Antioch & Valley Springs, Ca
Arrested – out on Bail On 2/3/09 the Antioch Unified School District called the Antioch Police Department to report that their Technology Support staff (computer technicians) had located what appeared to be photos of naked children on the work computer of one of their teachers. The teacher, James Carlile, had asked that his computer be fixed as he was having trouble accessing specific sites. Carlile teaches music at Carmen Dragon Elementary. As soon as the school district learned of the child pornography, Carlile was placed on administrative leave. The Antioch Police Department’s forensic computer specialist was able to determine that there were in fact several pornographic pictures depicting children on Carlile’s computer. His computer was password protected, and he was the only person who had access to it when the photos were downloaded. On 2/11/09,the Antioch Police Department, along with the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Department personnel, served search warrants at Carlile’s Valley Springs home in Calaveras County, and at the boat that he lives on in Antioch during the school week. Carlile was located at his boat and arrested without incident for possessing the child pornography. Computers were seized from his home and are being searched to determine if they also contain child pornography. Carlile was booked at the Antioch Police Department. He later posted bail and was released. The Antioch Police Department is continuing to investigate this case. If the public has any information they can contact Detective Danielle Sierra at (925)779-6931
This preliminary information is made available by the Field Services Bureau. Any further information or additional press releases will be provided by the Investigations Bureau at (925) 779-6874.
