A school volunteer who admitted to police he had been sexually attracted to children since he was 12 was arrested Tuesday on 10 counts of sex exploitation.

Travis Scott Kincaid-Mata, 27, of Buckeye, admitted to uploading and trading pornographic images of minors to a well-known social networking service, Phoenix police said.

Kinkaid-Mata volunteered at Longview Elementary School in the Osborn School District through a federal work study program at Anthem College, school officials said. 

He came to the attention of investigators on March 26, after they received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that 18 images of child pornography had been uploaded to their servers. 

The graphic images were of children engaged with sex with other children and adults, according to Phoenix police Officer James Holmes.

Holmes said investigators discovered the email address used to register the account belonged to Kincaid-Mata and that he had allegedly used his home computer to upload the images, according to the probable cause statement.  

Search warrants for Kinkaid's home, computer and cellular telephone were served, and the investigation is continuing.

Osborn School District Superintendent Patricia Tate issued a statement that said in part:

"To our knowledge no Longview students were involved nor was any inappropriate material downloaded from any Osborn computer.

"The Osborn School District is cooperating fully with local and federal authorities as the investigation continues. The safety of our children is our first priority."

The Phoenix Police Department asks anyone who may have information concerning this investigation to call 623-466-1829 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO.

The public can also call Silent Witness detectives toll-free at 1-800-343-TIPS. Your call will remain anonymous. Another way to leave a message is to head to the website silentwitness.org.
