The arrest occurred after detectives served a search warrant at Baldwin’s office at the Skyway Drive campus and at his residence in Morgan Hill.

Detectives said that on Aug. 16 they were notified that a member of the facilities department at Valley Christian Schools was in possession of explicit digital media of juveniles. During the investigation, Baldwin was identified as a staff member who allegedly paid students for providing the explicit images and video.

Police said Valley Christian Schools immediately cooperated and assisted with the investigation to ensure the safety of their students.

In a statement released Thursday, Valley Christian Schools said that due to the ongoing criminal proceeding, they would keep their comments brief, but that they are “deeply disturbed” by the accusations against Baldwin and that they are “antithetical to our Christian faith, values and standards.”

Baldwin has been placed on administrative leave, according to the schools.  

Police are still investigating and would like to hear from anyone who may have information regarding the case. People can contact Detective Sgt. Pierce at 408.537.1397 or [email protected].
