Investigators have now identified 17 children and multiple adult women Jason Robert Porter allegedly sexually molested or secretly photographed, according to San Luis Obispo County Assistant District Attorney Lee Cunningham.

Porter, 44, is accused of sexually molesting the children, making child porn and secretly photographing women’s bodies or undergarments. For example, Porter allegedly attached a camera on his shoe and then took photos under woman’s skirts.

On Tuesday, Porter plead not guilty to 31 charges including eight counts of committing lewd acts with a child, six counts of oral copulation with a child, 10 counts of using a concealed camera, five counts of using a device to see through clothing, one count of possession material depicting a child engaged in sexual acts and one count of using a minor for sex acts. The children ranged in ages from 1 to 10 years old at the time of the abuse. Two of the child victims are now over 18 years of age.

Even though investigators have discovered photographs of women’s bodies or undergarments that Porter allegedly took without the subject’s consent, those charges have not yet been filed.

Officers arrested Porter in both June and July. On June 23, a woman found Porter taking lewd photographs of her 6-year-old daughter. Police arrested Porter and booked him in Jail, but he quickly posted bail and was released.

In July, officers served a search warrant at a home Porter shares with his parents. Detectives seized computers and storage devices and discovered thousands of images and videos of suspected child and adult pornography. Officers arrested Porter again on July 16, and he has since remained in San Luis Obispo County Jail with his bail set at $7 million.

Paso Robles police are continuing to try to identify women and children from photos and videos they found in Porter’s home.

Investigators request that anyone with information about the case call the police department at (805) 237-6464 or Crime Stoppers at (805) 549-STOP.



Lenny Jones is in Wasco Prison/reception center. Probably waiting to hear where his more permanent destination will be. I wonder how the AG citizen of the year big time realtor schmuck is liking his new accommodations….no actually I don’t. It can’t be bad enough as far as I’m concerned.

Or was that a rhetorical question?


Has Lenny been sentenced? If so for how long?


Considering the number of creeps, crooks, murderers, madmen and perverts living among us, it won’t be long before the Central Coast needs its own prison.


We have one, or don’t you leave your house, it’s where we have a bunch of over paid government workers.


We have the grey bar inn and California Mens Colony in our backyard. Wake up and smell the coffee


Unlike his folks, I hope this sicko’s wife isn’t brainwashed into thinking “he’s not that bad”.

For the sake of her kids, I assume she’ll file for divorce immediately but in the Porter household, who knows.

BTW any perv who messes w/a ONE YEAR OLD should be castrated. Harsh but necessary.


Not harsh at all.


Must be interesting conversation around the dinner table. I can see why people pay a ransom to go to Mission Prep, they certainly see everything.


Jason Porter’s wife is a Thai bride. I can only imagine that she and their children have been abused.


If anything just make sure he does his time in the general population. I think most folks have heard stories about how pedophiles enjoy their prison stay among other the general prison population instead of segregated from them,


Unfortunately, they have their own special area where their population can sit around and discuss their disgusting actions and enjoy each other company.. I am sorry, but I do not understand why we allow these scumbags, the worst of society, to even exist. Anyone who goes after little children should never be allowed to walk among our children again. 19 counts, age 1 to 10, some are now 18 years old, has lived with his parents for years and the two professional teaching administrators never saw anything. Really! They do not deserve to be in the teaching field if they cannot even these behaviors in the own household over a long period of years. Mrs. Porter’s article in the fish wrap was appalling and nothing more than an attempt to save her career. These are really sick people!


Why are repeat offender rapists (with politically-ifluencial parents) only getting 30 days in jail????


nice looking fellow; where are the torches and pitchforks?


How are his offences less than the pervert who just got 184 years in prison? This guy should not be out on bail.

Time for the DA to prioritize taking care of children.


The DA files the charges recommended by the investigating agency and those allowed by law. They haven’t even finished the investigation yet for crying out loud! How the heck is the DA supposed to do anything before the investigation is done?! Your idiotic vendetta against Dow just makes you look foolish. You really should educate yourself on the law and quit slandering the best DA this county has ever had.


LOL if you think the charges are based on the recommendation of the investigating agency. The LE can put whatever crime they want in that little box on their reports, but the DA goes with their system of prioritizing when deciding how to charge.

It’s all about politics and money. I don’t have anything against Dow. I just want him to give the max to all the pervs and not let them plea out. Lenny Jones got 14 years. That is BS.

He should have got 18 x the number of children he forcefullly molested. You think 14 is a lot, but Lenny actually got a major break. …..8 for part a and 10 for part b x his victims. Yes, Lenny got one heck of a deal.

288. (a) Except as provided in subdivision (i), any person who

willfully and lewdly commits any lewd or lascivious act, including

any of the acts constituting other crimes provided for in Part 1,

upon or with the body, or any part or member thereof, of a child who

is under the age of 14 years, with the intent of arousing, appealing

to, or gratifying the lust, passions, or sexual desires of that

person or the child, is guilty of a felony and shall be punished by

imprisonment in the state prison for three, six, or eight years.

(b) (1) Any person who commits an act described in subdivision (a)

by use of force, violence, duress, menace, or fear of immediate and

unlawful bodily injury on the victim or another person, is guilty of

a felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison

for 5, 8, or 10 years.


You should also read the article before posting. Did you happen to read THIS line?:

“Officers arrested Porter again on July 16, and he has since remained in San Luis Obispo County Jail with his bail set at $7 million.”


Why do they not revoke his bail like they did with Lenny Jones? This creeper has more victims and has a more varied degree of charges against him.


I sure wish people would read the articles in their entirety and educate themselves, at least minimally, on the criminal justice system before posting.


Where’s Lenny Jones ?
