Mother finds her 6-year-old girl with 44-year-old man
June 29, 2016
A Paso Robles woman found a 44-year-old man taking lewd photographs of her 6-year-old daughter last week. Police say it was not the first time the man engaged in a lewd act with the child.
At about 10:55 p.m. on June 23, the Paso Robles Police Department received a report of a disturbance outside a home in the 1000 block of Vista Grande Street. Officers discovered the mother had interrupted Paso Robles resident Jason Robert Porter as he was photographing her daughter. Officers described Porter as a visitor of the home.
While investigating the incident, police determined Porter had previously committed a lewd act with the same victim. Officers arrested Porter at the scene and booked him into San Luis Obispo County Jail on charges of possession of child pornography and committing a lewd act with a child under the age of 14.
Porter is no longer in custody, according to the county sheriff’s office website.
An investigation into Porter’s activities is ongoing. Investigators request that anyone with information about the case call the police department at (805) 237-6464 or Crime Stoppers at (805) 549-STOP.
