–Jason Robert Porter, a 44-year-old man from Paso Robles, has been arrested on seven counts of lewd acts upon a child, five counts of sexual acts with a child under ten, one count of sexual exploitation of a child, one count of possession of child pornography, and nine counts of secretly recording victims, according to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office.

Detectives have identified and contacted the families of the nine identified molestation victims. They are encouraging anyone with information regarding additional victims to contact the Paso Robles Police Department.

Paso Robles PD detectives began an investigation into suspect Jason Porter after his arrest on June 23. As part of this investigation, detectives served a search warrant at Porter’s residence on June 24. During the service of that search warrant, detectives located and seized several computers, numerous digital information storage devices and multiple cameras.

With the assistance of personnel from the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office Crime Lab, the seized computers and storage devices were searched and thousands of digital images and videos of suspected child pornography were discovered. Some of the images and videos appeared to have been manufactured by Porter, and detectives discovered images of Porter in the act of sexually molesting at least nine different juvenile girls.

An arrest warrant was obtained and on July 15, at approximately 3:30 p.m. officers from the South Pasadena Police Department located and arrested Porter without incident in the 1100 block of El Centro in that city. Porter was housed at the Alhambra City Jail and Paso Robles Police Department detectives responded there and took Porter into custody at approximately 8:30 p.m.

Porter was transported to the Paso Robles PD detention facility and later booked into the SLO County Jail. His bail has been set at $7,000,000.00.

This is an ongoing investigation and anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call the Paso Robles Police Department at (805) 237-6464. Persons wishing to remain anonymous are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers’ 24-hour hotline at 549-STOP or by texting “SLOTIPS” plus your message” to CRIMES (274637).
