HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A professional photographer accused of fondling two children while taking their school photos in September was indicted by an Oahu grand jury Tuesday.

This was the second time city prosecutors presented the case against Gerard Mueden to a grand jury. A judge tossed out the earlier indictment due to a technical error.

Prosecutors say the House of Photography employee sexually assaulted two students at Lehua Elementary while positioning them to be photographed.

Mueden is free after posting $20,000 bail. He was ordered to stay away from the accusers in the case.
