The Halifax nanny awaiting sentencing for possessing child porn is also facing charges of sexual assault and sexual interference, CBC News has learned

Thomas Anthony Eisan, 26, of Dartmouth admitted in November to possessing hundreds of explicit photos and videos of children being attacked.

After news spread that he was nabbed for child porn, police began investigating complaints that he molested and sexually assaulted two young girls at a home in Lower Sackville.

He's now facing three sexual assault and three sexual touching charges.

A source said the complainants are not connected to any of his child care work. 

The incidents allegedly happened between New Year's Eve 2008 and July 2, 2012.

The sex charges involving the young girls in Lower Sackville return to court next week.

Eisan is also scheduled to go trial at the end of this month on charges he sexually assaulted two women.

The alleged sex attacks involving the women goes to trial on Jan. 31.
