Father Accused Of Molesting Daughter’s 12-Year-Old Friend

MURIETTA (AP) — A California father has been charged with molesting his daughter’s 12-year-old friend while the girl perused the state’s sex offender website.

Riverside County prosecutors say 45-year-old Johannes Antonio Pena fondled himself and touched the girl inappropriately during a weekend sleepover at his French Valley home.

The girl was using a laptop computer logged on to the Megan’s Law website at the time of the alleged incident.

Pena pleaded not guilty Tuesday to felony lewd acts with a child, felony distributing harmful matter to a child and misdemeanor annoying a child.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise says Pena showed the girl a sex video on his laptop.

Investigators say the girl later logged on to the sex offender website and Pena started touching himself and kissing her.
