MALIBU (CBS) — Artist Paul Rusconi was out on bail Sunday while the investigation continues into whether he’s guilty of child molestation and possessing child pornography, sheriff’s officials said.

Rusconi, 45, was arrested in front of his Malibu home on the 5800 block of Bonsall Drive at 2:18 p.m. Friday, according to the sheriff’s Inmate Information Center and Deputy Bill Brauberger of the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau.

The artist, known for his digital screening work using popular culture images, was booked at the Lost Hills sheriff’s station for lewd acts upon a minor and possession of child pornography, Brauberger said.

He was held on $220,000 bail, which he posted Saturday night, according to Deputy Benjamin Grubb.
