A San Jacinto man has been charged with multiple counts of lewd acts with a child under 14 according to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.
Investigators with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about a man allegedly uploading child pornography, according to a news release from the D.A.’s office.
On Jan. 23, officials served a search warrant at the home of Ramiro Gonzales Cano, 21, who they believe was also molesting a girl under the age of 14 after obtaining evidence from his home, officials said.
The D.A.’s office charged Cano with five counts of committing lewd acts on a child under 14 and one count each of possessing matter depicting child pornography and using minors for obscene matters.
Cano was arraigned on all seven felony counts and entered a not guilty plea on all counts.
He is scheduled to go before a judge on Feb. 7 and is being held on $275,000 bond, according to a news release.
