Sponsored by:

A former prison guard from Calaveras County is facing a total of 95 felony counts of child molestation and rape.

The Calaveras Enterprise reports Neil Leash´s first court appearance will be January 30.

The 46 year old was arrested in mid-September at his San Andreas Apartment, where investigators found more than 10 videos allegedly showing Leash having sex with young girls. Since that time, six rape charges have be added as well as additional charges of various acts with minor girls, one under the age of 14.

At the time of his arrest, Leash was working at Sierra Conservation Center as a correctional officer.
