Bounce House Worker Accused of Taking Inappropriate Photos of Young Girl

A California teen was arrested for taking inappropriate photos of a 7-year-old girl while working at an indoor bounce house, police said.

Tavi Benelli, 18, of Belmont, allegedly escorted the girl to a private room, where he took pictures of her and touched her inappropriately.  Benelli allegedly told the girl and said that she had a scratch on her body and needed medical attention. In the private room, Benelli told the girl to turn around before instructing her to jump up and down as he took photos of her. The girl then asked Benelli what he was doing. He said there was a dead insect on her backside, which he then brushed off, prosecutors said. The girl left the room and told her nanny what happened who called police. If convicted, Benelli faces up to 10 years in prison.
