Man and girlfriend arrested for child pornography in California

Humans are complicated beings and why they do some things cannot be easily explained. Some people have inappropriate sexual impulses that they cannot control. These impulses can result in serious legal problems if a person decides to take things too far. One couple in California has ended up in this situation and is now facing criminal charges for child pornography, as well as various other crimes.

The couple, a 39-year-old man and his girlfriend, was arrested following an investigation by law enforcement over suspicion of sex crimes being committed against minors. The police suspect the man of sexually abusing four children over the course of several years. One of the alleged victims is an infant, according to reports released to the public by authorities

Prosecutors claim the sexual abuse began in June 2005 with one of the minor victims. The abuse allegedly continued until the man was arrested in July 2015. The alleged infant victim is 20 days old. The other victims are a 6-year-old boy, a 10-year-old girl and a 14-year-old girl.

The man now faces 13 felony charges of sexual abuse. The suspect's arraignment hearing was postponed after the man did not enter a plea in court in California. However, eventually the man's criminal trial will begin, meaning that he will have to respond to the allegations of child pornography and other sex crimes. On the other hand, there are always two sides to every story, and the man will have an opportunity to tell his side of the story in court.
