RALEIGH, N.C. — A Wake County grand jury Monday handed up child-sex charges against a former North Raleigh Christian Academy volunteer who already faces charges that he improperly touched two young girls.

The indictments name Donald Cameron, 65. Prosecutors told WRAL that one of the indictments involved a girl at the school in an incident that happened last year. The other indictments involve incidents going back as far as the 1990s, they said.

The indictments, on which Cameron has not yet been arraigned, allege four counts of taking abusive liberties with a minor.

Cameron was a volunteer at North Raleigh Christian Academy. Officials there said he volunteered for two years in the music library, but had no direct supervision over students.

Cameron made his first court appearance in February, when he rejected a plea deal on charges of taking indecent liberties by touching two girls, ages 8 and 9. Prosecutors say those girls were playing in his yard on Shadowbrook Drive in North Raleigh in March and April 2006.

Cameron is free on bond on those charges.

The girls’ parents said they didn't suspect Cameron was anything but a friendly neighbor until a child in the neighborhood witnessed the girls being touched and urged them to tell their parents.

Wake County prosecutors said in February that investigators had identified three victims in California.
