The case against the Campbell nanny accused of molesting eight young girls went before a judge Tuesday but was continued to March 18.
"The defense needs to consult with experts," Santa Clara County Deputy DA Clarissa Hamilton said.
The Campbell Police Department, in conjunction with the San Jose Police Department Child Exploits Team arrested on suspicion of child molestation.
The crimes, according to court documents, took place between November 2009 and March 2012.
Walker, 41, worked as a nanny in Campbell for more than a decade and was known by the children he watched as "Mr. Johnny."
Walker has been charged with a total of 13 counts, including:
- 10 counts of lewd and lascivious acts on a child under the age of 14;
- Two counts of oral copulation or sexual penetration of a child 10 years or younger;
- One count of possession of child pornography.
"If convicted on these charges, he's looking at life in prison," Hamilton said.
Campbell Police did not release any specifics to the nature of the alleged victim's identity due to confidentiality, but police did confirm that they all ranging in age from 9-to-15-years-old. Most either know each other or know of each other.
It is also alleged that Walker would have the young girls video chat and visit inappropriate websites with him online, the court reports said.
The court reports state that Walker said he had "an interest in 'child development' and 'child psychology.' His goal was to become a teacher."
The reports also reveal that Walker has been investigated in the past for "similar types of allegations and these reports and facts will be located and forwarded to the DA's office at a later time."
Trial is set for March 18, 8:30 a.m. in dept. 24 of the Santa Clara County Superior Court in downtown San Jose.
