The photographer accused of allegedly abusing children in La Orotava in Tenerife was told this week he had to pay a bond of 21,000 euros to ensure his economic responsibilities for his alleged crimes.
The suspect is being prosecuted for 16 sexual offences, and several of these relate to children. Judge Sergio Oliva said there are indications that he carried out acts of sexual abuse with thirteen children between the ages of 11 and 17 from 2015 until he was arrested on 24 November 2017.
It appears that he communicated with these young children through social media networks, and in many cases because they themselves were interested in having a photo session or a ‘book’ (a slang word used in the fashion industry) for an album of promotional images of a model.
According to the accusations, this photographer presented the image of a fashion photographer, and enticed his victims through social media networks with promises of free promotion.
