upland-psyCLAREMONT, CALIF. (KTLA) — A 56-year-old psychologist is accused of molesting two young boys during counseling sessions.

Thomas Gary Amberson, of Upland, was arrested last month after allegations from a 9-year old boy that he was molested during a counseling session.

Amberson was investigated in 2008 after a 13-year old patient made similar allegations, but no charges were filed in that case.

But the complaint filed Wednesday by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office includes charges relating to both victims.

Amberson is charged with four counts of lewd acts upon a child and one count of possession of child pornography.

He is currently free on $100,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 17.

Police believe there may be additional victims.

Anyone with information should contact Lt. Vander Veen with the Claremont Police Department at (909)399-5420.
