Germantown Man Charged with Sexting to Students

May 29, 2018

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department – Special Victims Investigations Division have arrested and charged a Germantown man who had been working as an after-school program employee for texting inappropriate and sexual messages with two boys.

  Police have charged Christopher Steve Escobar, 27, of Port Haven Drive in Germantown, for having inappropriate and sexual communication with two boys that began when the boys were in elementary school and continued through their middle school years. At the time of these offenses, Escobar was employed with a company that administered an after-school program at the victims’ elementary school.

  Investigation revealed that in approximately August of 2012, Escobar began inappropriately texting two approximately 9-year-old male elementary school students whom he came into contact with as an employee of the Bar-T after-school program at Kensington Parkwood Elementary School in Kensington. The texting between Escobar and the two victims continued until 2017, when the two males were approximately 14 years old. It should be noted that the two victims did not have knowledge of each other’s texting with Escobar.

  On May 24, detectives arrested Escobar on the strength of a warrant, charging him with two counts of sexual abuse of a minor for the exploitation of these two victims. Escobar was arrested at his residence and transported to the Central Processing Unit. He is being held without bond.

  Investigators believe there may be additional victims. Detectives are requesting that parents talk to their children about possible interactions with Escobar and contact SVID detectives at 240-773-5400 if they believe their child was victimized.
