Riverside – Accused child molester Joseph Hayden Boston appeared in court for the first time on Wednesday, December 6.
Boston, after being arrested for molesting two children in a Riverside hotel room, also allegedly confessed to police that he had molested nearly 50 other children.
Despite his confession, however, Boston pled not guilty to three counts of sexual acts with a child under 10 and two counts of lewd acts with a child. The charges also included two sentencing enhancement allegations for multiple victims. As a result of these enhancements, Boston could face life in prison.
Although Boston is known to have only resided in Riverside since early November, he previous lived in the Cities of Lakewood and Buena Park.
The police are encouraging anyone with information about the suspect and/or the investigation to call investigators at (951) 353-7945.
