San Diego man accused of using baby sitters to provide child porn victims pleads not guilty

Man pleads not guilty in baby sitter porn case

SAN DIEGO — A San Diego man accused of paying baby sitters to bring him children to molest has pleaded not guilty to 20 criminal counts.

Jared Yaffe (YA’-fee), 30, entered pleas Tuesday to child molestation, kidnapping for sexual acts and production of child pornography. He faces up to 129 years in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors contend Yaffe ran a child-porn ring last year and that his five victims included a 3-year-old.

He was arrested in Brazil in May. He’s jailed on $5 million bail.

Attorney Knut Johnson said outside court it was unclear whether he would continue to represent Yaffe.

Another man, Aaron Zendejas (zehn-DAY’-hahs), 24, is accused of providing Yaffe with a victim and has pleaded not guilty to several charges.
