A former CNN producer is under investigation of allegations regarding “juvenile victims” in Fairfax, Virginia, the second former employee to be have been to accusations involving minors this month.

The man, Rick Saleeby, a former senior producer at the network, is being investigated by detectives of the child exploitation unit of the Fairfax County Police Department’s Major Crimes Bureau, the police department confirmed in a statement Thursday. A spokesman for the police department said he was not able to provide additional details.

“While we will eventually be transparent about our findings, safeguarding the personal privacy and safety of victims and witnesses as well as maintaining the integrity of our criminal investigation are of paramount importance,” the statement said.

Police did not say what led to their investigation, and it is unclear whether Saleeby has been charged.

Saleeby did not immediately respond to a phone call Thursday. Fairfax County court records were not available online, and the courthouse was closed Thursday ahead of the New Year’s Eve holiday.

CNN confirmed that Saleeby was no longer employed by the network, saying in a statement that he resigned more than two weeks ago.

A federal grand jury indicted another former CNN producer, John Griffin, this month on charges of enticing minors to engage in “unlawful sexual activity” at his property in Vermont.

Griffin was charged with three counts of “using a facility of interstate commerce” to lure minors and people claiming to be their parents to train them to be sexually subservient, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Vermont. Griffin pleaded not guilty to all three charges last week.
