Detectives have identified at least nine young girls Jason Robert Porter allegedly sexually molested from child pornography discovered in his Paso Robles home. Porter is currently in jail on 23 charges related to sexually molesting local children.

Porter, who has been arrested twice in the last month, is also accused of both possessing and manufacturing child pornography. Investigators identified girls Porter allegedly molested while searching through his collection of child pornography.

Other possible victims have yet to be identified.

On June 23, Paso Robles police arrested Porter, 44, after a woman found him taking lewd photographs of her 6-year-old daughter. Porter was booked in 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. He quickly posted bail and was released.

Last week, police served a search warrant at a home Porter shares with his parents, Lyle and Margaret Porter. Detectives seized computers and storage devices and discovered thousands of images and videos of suspected child pornography.

Officers obtained an arrest warrant, and on Friday, the South Pasadena Police Department located Porter. South Pasadena officers arrested Porter, and Paso Robles police transported him back to the Central Coast.

Upon his second arrest, Porter was charged with seven counts of lewd acts upon a child, five counts of sexual acts with a child under the age of 10, one count of sexual exploitation of a child, one count of possession of child pornography and nine counts of secretly recording a victim. Porter remains in San Luis Obispo County Jail with his bail set a $7 million.

Detectives have contacted the families of the nine victims who have been identified. The Paso Robles Police Department is encouraging anyone who has information about additional victims to come forward.

For years, local author Tina Swithin fought to keep Porter, her former brother-in-law, away from her children. However, the court forced Swithin to allow some visitation with Porter at the family’s Paso Robles home.

Swithin has written that Porter beat puppies and made out with a 14-year-old girl at a wedding. He was also homicidal and suicidal, and he spoke of murdering and raping women, Swithin wrote.

    Once again, I can’t believe in what I am reading where people that are assumed Christians are coming down so hard on Jason Porter by wanting him castrated, murdered, etc.! I remind any Christian that you’re to forgive and love Mr. Jason Porter as your Yahweh god so states within the scriptures.

    Furthermore, if Jason Porter is a Christian, or he becomes one in prison, which most do to cover their bets, he will be forgiven by Jesus if he confesses his sins, and therefore he will join other Christians in heaven where you’ll get to meet him someday. Won’t that be justice and fun to look forward too?

    “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)

    Christians, don’t forget to forgive Mr. Jason Porter, because if you don’t, Jesus will not forgive you and therefore you’re hell bound to the burning sulfur lakes of hell upon your demise!

    “For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” (Matthew 6: 14-15)

    Citizen–the dad Lyle Porter did help start a charter school Almond acres. He was very much involved there as a consultant during its first year.
    Any family whose young kids (esp. girls) have spent time w/the Porters should have a heads up.
    And ask Why did Lyle leave Mission Prep in the first place?
    Why did he accompany his adult son (more than once) to Thailand–a known child sex industry destination?

    They should revoke his bail like they did Lenny Jones. If they know of 9 victims as of now there must be 100’s out there unfortunately.

    The evidence clearly demonstrates that he is a continuing threat to the most vulnerable people in society, our children. He should be denied bail. I don’t care if his bail is set at $700 million, it’s not enough. Any judge that lets this scum hit the streets again should be beaten with a stupid stick.
    I’m sick and tired of watching these bastards waltz in and out of court and then through the revolving prison doors. These guys do not reform, a tiger never changes it’s stripes. Lock them up. The protection of innocent children is of paramount importance.

    Lyle and Margaret Porter tried to start a Charter School in Paso Robles, presumably while their adult pedophile son lived with them. The arrogance of some people is beyond comprehension.

    I hope the detectives are trying to find out what his father has been up to, both at home and in Thailand.
