TULSA -- New charges have been filed against a former Tulsa Zoo employee previously arrested on child pornography charges.

Child sexual abuse charges have now been filed against Kim Bowman, 65, for an alleged 2014 incident.

Bowman was arrested on December 8 for aggravated possession of child pornography and distribution of child pornography after police received a search warrant.

According to Tulsa Police, Cyber Crimes Unit opened an investigation after receiving child pornography complaints on Bowman.

A statement from the Tulsa Zoo released December 8 reads in part, "As a family destination, we take any such allegations seriously and will cooperate fully, if requested, with any police investigation."

Tuesday, a not guilty plea was entered by the court on Bowman's behalf.

Bowman was a conductor on the children's train at the Tulsa Zoo. Bowman's bond has been set at $2 million.
