DENVER (AP) — Prosecutors have formally charged a Denver high school security guard accused of soliciting two students for sex and sending one of them nude photos of himself.

The Denver District Attorney's Office says 22-year-old Enrique Vega is charged with two counts of sexual exploitation of a child and one count of attempted sexual assault on a child.

Investigators say a 15-year-old girl told them she and Vega began exchanging texts in mid-August and that soon after, the guard began asking her for sex.

The Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/1qolkZo ) Vega also is accused of sending inappropriate texts and nude photos to one of the teen's friends, whose age hasn't been released. Police say he asked the girl to meet him at a motel for sex, but he wasn't there when she arrived because he said the school board was watching him.
